Remembering our Veterans

Veterans day is a time for remembrance, and a time to say “Thank you” to the men and women who serve our country.  Spencer Technology Solutions would like to join the rest of the nation in saying a heart felt thank you to all who have served past and present for their sacrifice. 

Freedom is so often one of the many things that we take foregranted, and we forget the high price that has been paid for our freedom by those who came before us, and by those who are still serving today, protecting us day and night, while we go on with our daily routines.  As civilians, we will never know the trials they endure, or in many instances understand all that they go through  Our freedom is not free, but has cost the lives of many thousands of Americans. Let us hold them close in our hearts daily, and be thankful for the precious gift of freedom that they have given to us.  Say Thank you to a Veteran and their families today.  God Bless America.

Author Signing in Christiansburg

Well known historian and author, Bud Robertson will be at the Christiansburg Barnes and Noble located at 110 Conston Ave for a book signing on Saturday, November 12, 2011 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.   He will be there to promote his new book The Untold Civil War. 
Robertson describes his book as revealing new facets of a seemingly well-known slice of American history, and he says it is just in time to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.  The book is dramatically illustrated with images and objects that are from both archives and compelling contemporary photography, this book delivers a surprise on every page: from precious personal mementos to forgotten battle sites. This book adds a new dimension to our understanding of the Civil War and is a must have for anyone with an interest in American History.
If you are not familiar with Dr. Robertson,  he is one of the most authoritative names in Civil War history, Dr. Robertson was Executive Director of the U.S. Civil War Centennial Commission and worked with Presidents Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson in marking the war’s 100th anniversary. Among numerous books, his massive biography of Gen. “Stonewall” Jackson won eight national awards and was the basis for the mega-movie, “Gods and Generals,” for which he served as chief historical consultant. Dr. Robertson is the recipient of every major award given in the Civil War field, a lecturer of national acclaim and is a distinguished professor in history at VA Tech in Blacksburg, VA. 
Spencer Technology Solutions is a proud friend of Dr. Robertson, and together with the Roanoke Valley chapter of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association will also be welcoming Dr. Robertson at a speaking event tentatively scheduled for April of 2012.
