“The story of G.I. Joe and Lillie is another poignant and inspiring reminder of the greatness of the World War II generation.” Tom Brokaw, NBC News Anchor

More than a biography that you can’t put down, G.I. Joe and Lillie recounts the inspiring story of sacrifice, love, and devotion during World War 2. Oak Ridge Boys tenor, Joseph Bonsall, shares his parent’s love story and the long-lasting effects the war had on them.

This heart-warming story reveals a five-day courtship and 55 years of marriage strengthened by faith. The war left Joe with nightmares, crippling injuries, and only one true friend, but she was all he would ever need. Lillie's steadfast faith and heartfelt devotion is a lesson for our time.

This story of patriotism, bravery abroad and at home, and deep commitment reveals the very essence of America. The story of G.I. Joe and Lillie helps us all remember that true love never, ever dies.


Loyalty to country, respect for honor and courage, and love for one another are at the core of America’s survival through pain and loss. G.I. Joe & Lillie brings that message up close and personal through a story about one American G.I. family. I loved it. It moved me to tears. It reminds us all that America’s core values of love, loyalty, and faith are built upon compassion and commitment within each family.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger, syndicated radio talk show host, best-selling author, and columnist

It is one of the best stories about hardship and pleasure that I have read!

Chuck Yeager, Brig. Gen. USAF, Ret

Joe Bonsall’s very touching tribute to his mom and dad reminds us of a generation of Americans who made it possible for all us to live freely. The sacrifices of the “G.I. Joes and Lillies” during WWII, and their subsequent adjustment to normal life is a story with which we can all identify. It’s honest and heartwarming, coupled with great humanity.

Dick Clark, dick clark productions and legendary television personality

This story exemplifies the integrity and character behind the American dream — even when the dream doesn’t come true in the way you hoped it would. A great story of enduring faith and true commitment.
