Flying With Dad

A Daughter. A Father.

And the Hidden Gifts in His Stories from WWII. 

by Yvonne Caputo


Written with vivid detail, this encouraging, life-giving book is a tale of a World War II Veteran father and his daughter, who found the relationship with him she’d always longed for.


Do you have a family member who served in the military, who perhaps saw war, and wondered what their experience was really like?


Do you suspect there are past traumas that might be affecting their ability to open up?


Do you wish you could feel closer and more connected to your mom, dad, or other family members? If yes, Flying with Dad will pull you into a real-life story that shows you how.

Dying With Dad

Tough Talks for Easier Endings

by Yvonne Caputo


“How could you let your father die when he could have been saved? Even if it’s what he wanted, wasn’t that hard?”


“How could you let your father die when he could have been saved? Even if it’s what he wanted, wasn’t that hard?”

When Yvonne Caputo wrote her first book, Flying with Dad, she was surprised to find that readers had questions—not about her father’s adventures in World War II, but about how, years later, she was brave enough to stop paramedics from reviving him to respect his Do Not Resuscitate order.

In Dying with Dad, Yvonne’s goal is to share the joy she felt when her father died. Not because he died, but because at the end of his life he was treated exactly the way he’d wanted. It was possible because she dared to have a heart-to-heart conversation with him about his wishes for end-of-life experiences before it was too late.

Interested in interviewing Yvonne?

“You are an interviewer's dream. You spoke so articulately about your dad's wartime and post-war experiences, I was mesmerized as the interviewer. Your story brings home the reality that the trauma of war reverberates long after the fighting is over, and it affects generations thereafter.”
