2nd Lt. Peter Bonano (Pete) is awestruck by what lay before him. It was Thursday afternoon, May 24, 1945- sixteen days after Germany surrendered. A fortune in gold and silver (bullion and coins), along with a huge stockpile of currencies from several nations (including US currencies) was arranged on the polished floors of a heavily guarded large gymnasium inside an isolated log building in the vicinity of Bad Tölz, Germany. He had been transported to this place from Erlangen, Germany by two 3rd Army OSS (Office of Strategic Services) officers from General Patton’s headquarters in Regensburg.   [Published: May 2014] ... Gen. Patton died as a result of an auto accident.. He was not Killed/Assasinated.   See EXCERPT.

About Joseph Sprouse

Joseph Arnold Sprouse was born in the not-so-great depression near Atlanta, Georgia during the reign of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. As a child, his family at large (forever galvanized by the Civil War and FDR’s New Deal) nourished him on real life stories about the Civil War and the sainthood of FDR, which he later discovered to be a Southern myth. After a tour of duty with the United States Marine Corps, he attended the University of Florida where he received a B.S. in Physics in 1960, and a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1961. In 1967 he earned a Masters Degree in Physics from the University of Tennessee, and continued his graduate studies at the University of Tennessee Space Institute for several years thereafter. He worked fifteen years as an Aerospace Research Engineer at the Arnold Engineering Development Center in Tullahoma TN, and has published several Technical Reports. He also worked as a Technical Advisor for seven years in Riyadh Saudi Arabai.

Along the way, Patton asked the driver to detour to a nearby castle along the trip. [Read More... Go to EXCERPT]
