By the way, Bill’s nephew is Ken Chitester, author of the book “Aboard Air Force One/ 200,000 Miles with a White House Aide.“ Ken traveled 201,197 miles aboard Air Force One to 22 countries, 36 states and 137 cities with President Bill Clinton in 65 trips, 162 days and 225 flights during his two years at the White House. Politics aside, the book is fascinating.
I haven’t told you about Bill’s extraordinary collection of World War II memorabilia but will do so in a few weeks when I tour the Clarksburg Fire station with him. I saw Nazi items and military items I’d never seen before. There’s a chance you may get to see them, too. A pencil drawing of Bill when he was in Naples is outstanding. Surely the artist became famous. Well, we’ll see.
Next week – a local author.
