Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1: 2-4


Three New Stories

Barry Prowell reflects back to the day he was separated from much of his body in Vietnam and ask the Question "Knowing the cost, Would I do it again?"
Two Score Ago by Barry Prowell

I am proud the stories you read about on these pages were not written for Hollywood, but are real events described as honestly and truthflul as possible. To share a truthful account of my Vietnam experience, it is time to share this story and introduce you to a real American Hero.
The Hero by Warren Gallion

The question most ask of my wife by people, that read my stories "Is what did you think about what Warren was doing?" The war was hard on the soldiers that fought, but the girls back home that wrote to us also paid a price. Martha didn't become the Love of my life until after I returned home from Vietnam, but she has been gracious and understanding enough to allow me to share my newest story about The Girl Back Home"
