A children's story
Written by
Major Van Harl USAF Ret.

"Arnie the Aladdin Lamp goes to Alaska" is a children's story about an Aladdin kerosene lamp named ARNIE, his owner and their great adventures in Canada and Alaska.  The story takes place in 1942, during the building of the Alaska Highway and Elmendorf Army Air Field in Anchorage, Alaska.  Children enjoy the story and love ARNIE.  What they do not realize is they are getting a history lesson while reading the story.  The story was written by Major Van Harl, USAF Ret. (Security Police) and illustrated by SSgt. Richard Gipple (who is active duty Air Force / Security Forces).

SRA Brian G. Kolfage JR.

SRA Kolfage an Air Force, Security Forces member "cop" was seriously injured in a suspected mortar attack in Iraq and is currently in Walter Reid Army Medical Center.  Brian is now a triple amputee.  He lost both legs at the hip and his right arm at the elbow.  Most likely he will be medically retired from the military and receive VA benefits for the rest of his life.  However there are always expenses which are not covered by the military.  An account has been set up for Brian at the Eisenhower Bank on Goodfellow AFB, Texas.  The above children's story ARNIE, is on sale as a fundraiser for Brian. With Christmas coming ARNIE would make a great gift for some child and the fact that all profits raised will be sent to a veteran in need, makes the book an extra special gift to give this holiday season.  All profits from the sale of ARNIE will be sent to the account.  A complete accounting of sales will be shared with the ! Air Force Security Police Association and any other interested parties.
