Signing of ‘A Soldier’s Odyssey’ at Legion Post

Cecil Cline of Mooresville has published a new book, “A Soldier’s Odyssey,” and will do several book signings in the area.
According to material on his Web site, the book presents a “historical account of the ill- trained, ill-equipped and ill- prepared American soldiers as they faced the constant challenge of defending the Pusan Perimeter from the well-armed, well-trained, and well- equipped armies of North Korea.”
Cline tells of his first-hand experiences in the Korean foxholes as a gunner/fire team leader. The narrative includes his evacuation to a MASH unit by some of his fellow soldiers and the 19-month process, as he recovered from his near fatal gunshot wounds in Army hospitals.
Cline and his wife Becky live on the shores of Lake Norman in Mooresville.
He will sign books Friday at Mooresville Library during a luncheon, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The book will be offered at discounted prices.
On March 17, he will be at American Legion Post 342, 1024 Lincolnton Road, at 7 p.m. The post is marking the 89th anniversary of the American Legion.
On March 25, Cline will sign books at VFW Post 2031, Statesville, at 6 p.m.
Cline says the books are available at most online bookstores or directly from Piedmont Books, P.O.Box 4835, Mooresville, NC 28117 or his Web site, www.cecilcline.com.
