Chairman Tom Schellinger, a retired Northwest Airlines captain, said of Sailer’s book about Minnesota’s highest scoring fighter pilot in World War II, “The Oranges are Sweet is a wonderful reliving of the life of Major Don M. Beerbower. . . .
It goes far beyond the combat aspect of the war and delves into the human aspect of just what goes into making a true patriot.”
Paul Sailer named 2012 Writer of the Year by the Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame
