Richard Radune is a 1965 graduate of Syracuse University with a major in U. S. History. He served during the Vietnam War as an Air Force Captain at Grand Forks AFB, North Dakota and in the Alaskan Air Command at Sparrevohn AFS, Alaska. Following a 30 year business career in different parts of the country, Mr. Radune retired in 1998 and returned to his native Connecticut where his life long interest in history could be readily pursued. Mr. Radune has always been interested in the broad sweep of history and the forces spurring movement of large groups of people from place to place. The establishment of Pequot Plantation in southeastern Connecticut offered a perfect opportunity to illuminate this phenomenon. The resulting story provides a fascinating glimpse at the events and the people who influenced colonial history in the 1600s.
