Review

This is a masterful weave of military history, family history, and insights into the means whereby we try to recover or identify our fallen. It was informative and poignant all at the same time...It would be a great thing if each of our veterans could be so appropriately memorialized! - Brigadier General John S. Brown (retired), former Historian of the Army


Phil Rosenkrantz in "Letters From Uncle Dave" could not have written this WW II story any sooner, because it just recently ended. You must read this book. It is so much more than the title suggests. My cousin, S/Sgt Ross Carter, served in a sister company of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment 82nd Airborne with "Uncle Dave", and honored their sacrifices in "Those Devils In Baggy Pants" published in 1951. It was binary. There were those heroes who didn't make it. There were those who were "refugees from the law of averages" who did and came home. There was another group of heroes: Missing In Action. "Letters From Uncle Dave" is the story of one MIA who floated through time, bereft of a final resting place, and the journey of his family. Great job...I feel like Uncle Dave is my uncle, too. You have done a fabulous job blending all the parts of his life and the parts after his life ended to ensure that he will never be forgotten. In the Navy, we say Bravo Zulu or Well Done. - David Ross Fraley (cousin to author Ross Carter "Those Devils in Baggy Pants" about the 504 Parachute Infantry Regiment)


What an amazing journey and wonderful story on so many levels! I cannot commend you enough on your perseverance to find out about your uncle's story, to discover his remains, and to bring closure for you and your family...Hopefully, your book will be an inspiration to others who wish to discover their veteran's story. - Bravo! Steve Snyder, author of the award-winning book, Shot Down


Rosey is someone you know, an "average Joe", who was drafted into the Army to defend his country. You will read his letters to his family and marvel how he endured the hell of war. The only hint of dissatisfaction is his recommendation to his family to join the Navy. At the end of the book you will mourn the loss of your new friend and rejoice that SSG David Rosenkrantz was returned home to his family. - Stanley G Phernambucq COL (R) US Army
