The Old Man of the Radar Connies: Victor Sierra, a new book by L. De La Torre and Viggo E. Sorensen, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Seeking adventure and honor, Viggo enlisted in the US Air Force in 1951 and wanted to be a Flight Engineer. He will have a lot to prove as his peers and superiors scorn him and treat him poorly due to his status as a mere "enlisted man." Using his talents and abilities, he rises his way through the ranks, overcoming difficult bosses and sabotaging peers. The Old Man of the Radar Connies is an exciting, illuminating story of an underdog who achieves greatness through the American way, hard work, and perseverance.
