This is a hero's journey.
Gene was working as a civilian on Dutch Harbor, Alaska when the Japanese attacked, and was shot in the butt.
Forced to return to the States, he learned of the theft of his one-hour-old son from a Memphis Tennessee Hospital by the famed baby-merchant, Georgia Tann. Attempting to locate his son would be a consuming task for the next forty years.
Gene enlisted in the Marines and became a Marine Raider with the Third Marine Division.
His first battles were on Guadalcanal. He hit the beach on Guam the very first day.
He spent thirty five days on "Bloody" Iwo Jima.
After returning to the States after the War, Gene was a basket case.
His salvation came in automobile racing, in early 1947, and from then on, racing was his calling.
Gene was inducted into the Alabama Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1999.

Jimmie Mosteller set the standard for all other racing announcers in the state of Georgia.
"His perspective on racing goes back farther than anyone else I know. His historical knowledge of drivers and racers is better than any set of racing books you could buy," Ed Clark Pres. of Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Mosteller met and soicalized with the rich and famous and the down and out, but he never met a stranger, and treated everyone the way he would want them to treat him. His love for racing and life is reflected in this book, including his accounts of North Georgia Moonshiners. He is a member of the Georgia Automobile Racing Hall of Fame.
