      Mr. Lavergne is an amazing man. His first book, "A Sniper in the Tower" achieved so much notoriety, that major television networks that produced documentaries on the Tower incident, seeked out Mr. Lavergne first for interviews. He has been interviewed by many of these networks, which have included The History Channel. I have run into him many a time at the Main Building. He is one of the most unpretentious men I have ever met. I can't wait to read his latest book.
