Eye of the Storm - Medal of Honor

The Eye of the Storm - Medal of Honor is a 1,000 page documentary chronicling  events pulled from the pages of history, storied with the names of men who fought on the battle grounds of war and the fields of humanitarian relief reported in the world news around the globe. 

We need your help NOW, to fund the editing, publication printing and distribution this vital historical document.

This may be the last time you will have a chance to play a role in documenting the history, heritage, legacy and legendary valor created by men we know, have trained and worked with.  Share your pride in the history you helped to write.  Donate now, help us to record and preserve hard won heritage,  for all of us.

All donations go to funding the book.  Any profits realized, are reinvested into the Alcide Benini Heritage Museum and the Combat Control School Heritage support mission for all Combat Controllers.

The founder of the Combat Control School Heritage Foundation, Gene Adcock, CMSgt USAF Ret. has invested 20 years of his life and considerable personal fortune in compiling and writing the The Eye of the Storm - Medal of Honor, and it is a treasure worthy of being called his life's work.

There is no personal gain, other than to see the culmination of the authors life's work serving to preserve and document the Combat Control historical record, and to tell the story of the legendary valor of the men who wrote the history printed on the pages of time.

This is not just another book for the book-shelf, but a historical record of the heritage and legacy of Special Tactics Warriors that should be in the home library and on the coffee table of every Combat Controller, and every family member of every Combat Controller and Special Tactics Warrior.

It is a reference book you will refer to over, and over again.  The stories you have heard about the men and battles told by generations of Special Tactics Warriors will be confirmed and refreshed in your memory.  You will discover legendary valor being written in the pages of today's news by the extraordinary battlefield airmen, who can claim without hesitation, they were 'First There'.

Help us put this book on the bookshelves of history, and on the family table to be shared by generations to come.  Donate now...
