About the Author

Marcia Moen and Margo Heinen, twin sisters, were raised on a farm in western Minnesota, far from the reality of war and all its devastation. But sitting at the feet of their uncle, a WWII 5th Battalion Ranger - Captain Charles Parker, they heard him describe the battles and the escapades of the Rangers, and learned all about these unsung heroes and their undaunting courage. The authors are now dedicated to recording the stories of WWII veterans.

Events occur in the course of ones life that lead us on paths that we do not anticipate or choose. Heroes Cry Too is a tale of a young man who excelled in the service to his country in World War II as one of the first US Army Rangers. Warren Evans started life in rural Minnesota during the Depression. Raised by his mother, Warren was forced to grow up quickly, earning an income to supplement the families finances. Finding his way, often on his own, Warren ended up at South Dakota State on a football scholarship. To earn additional spending money, he joined the National Guard. On December 7, 1941, everything changed. Whether it was academics, athletics or work commitments, Warren was driven to excel at what ever task was in front of him. This lead him to be the best of the best in the Army, the Rangers. It also lead him into unimaginable peril and anguish.
The recounting of Warren Evan's life is the tale of a ever humble unassuming man, who through the worst of human experiences remained loyal to his God, his country and his love, Francis. I have known Warren all of my life and I can say that you will never meet a more humble, gentle, generous man.
Reading this book will lead you to be even more grateful for the sacrifices of those men who paid dearly for our freedoms.

This was a relative of mine, so I will admit that I am biased. However, several authors have used his personal accounts in their books. We laid him to rest a few weeks ago and I hope that his mind finally has some peace. I know he still had nightmares from the war. Relative or not, story well written or not, he was a hero. He did what many could not do or would not do in the hopes that we would have freedom.

I have no doubt that Warren "Bing" Evans is a true hero, but I didn't find his story of love nor war was adequately told. The details on each were very superficial and weak. I credit the authors with this, not the man they wrote about. Unfortunate.

Awesome book - I read it because I knew Warren Evans and grew up in his church in Huntingburg. He was an exceptional person.
