MY LAST BAGGAGE CALL ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE BY SERGEANT FIRST CLASS (SFC) GLENN W. POWELL

baggageOYYFormer Aide to Three U.S. Presidents Pens Life Story of a Path Least Traveled
(Reprinted with Permission from Black Pearls Magazine)

Writing our World Publishing proudly announces the winter 2017 publication of My Last Baggage Call Aboard Air Force One, by Sergeant First Class (SFC) Glenn W. Powell, as told to Presidential biographer Janis F. Kearney.  This new memoir chronicles the life and memories of SFC Glenn Powell, a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Army, and 10-year veteran of the White House where he served under Presidents George HW Bush, President William J. Clinton, and President George W. Bush.

SFC Powell was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. He says his real-life journey began in 1982 when he bypassed his high school graduation to join the U.S. Army.  That journey would take him from Fort Dix, New Jersey, to Manheim, Germany where he met Ronda Holloway, a young, beautiful soldier, and fellow Ohioan, who has been his wife and soul mate for 25 years.  Powell’s poignant and inspiring story includes both, his own memories, and memories from some 50 white house colleagues, family members and lifelong military buddies who enriched his life and made an indelible impact on his journey.

SFC Powell’s story is that of a restless young man who grew up in a working-class environment with ample opportunities to journey down the wrong path. Yet, thanks to his childhood village –the many role models whose lives exemplified the best in American values—made all the difference in his journey.

Except for that “village,” of his childhood, Glenn believes his story might have had a different ending. The hardworking citizens living purpose-filled lives served as a buffer against the discontent and civil unrest plaguing the rest of world. The centerpiece of that village, Glenn says, was his parents who, while they never lived under one roof, both loved him unconditionally.  Margaret Powell was a young single working mother and a constant reminder of the importance of working toward excellence in one’s chosen career. She would become Kroger Stores’ first African American manager. His father, a prominent entrepreneur in the Toledo area, would remain a constant in Glenn’s life until the end.

Glenn says these lessons sustained him throughout his journey – from the pampered child to the responsible teen, to the ambitious young soldier, to the doting husband and father; and the loyal and “never say never” Sergeant and aide to the President of the United States of America.  “My Last Baggage Call Aboard AF1” chronicles a most amazing journey that magically transformed Glenn Powell’s life, and so richly impacted those who knew him.
