The Book  

Remembering Joshua

The book, Remembering Joshua, is dedicated to the memory of Airman 1st Class Joshua Edward Woody and the 18 other airmen who lost their lives in the Khobar Towers Bombing and is based on the "" web site.

The book contains memories and photos of the good times we shared with Josh, as friends and family as well as some of the news articles and memorials related to the bombing and its aftermath. Some of the news stories are about Josh and Corning High School Football, while other news stories are about the Khobar Towers bombing and the events that followed locally and nationally.


A special chapter is dedicated to Nineteen Heroes, victims of the Khobar Towers bombing.


After almost five years of frustration, an indictment was issued on June 23, 2001 naming 14 individuals and strongly pointing towards the nation of Iran. A copy of the indictment is included as Appendix F in the book.


This book was originally published in October, 2001 for family members and close friends. The book is now available in Adobe PDF document form and can be downloaded for free from this web site. Acrobat Reader 3.0 or higher is required to read the files.
