Billie R. Armstrong

Author: Billie R. Armstrong arrived on this planet October 9, 1925, in the city of San Diego, California. Like many children of that era, he was part of the Great Depression years. At the age of sixteen, he quit school and got a job to help his mother support his younger bother and sister. In 1942, when he reached the age of seventeen, he joined the U.S. Navy. The results of this decision are to be found within the pages of his book, Survival on a Coral Planet.

Billie Armstrong now lives in Nixa, Missouri. In 2011, he was one of the local WWII veterans who visited Washington, D.C.as part of the Ozarks Honor Flight program.

The book is the true life account of heroic actions and survival in the South Pacific. Survival on a Coral Planet is available on amazon.com.
