A Harrowing Story From The Vietnam War
As each stroke of the keyboard hits it’s mark I pray that I do justice to this beautiful story of a hero that waited too long to get the medal he so deserved long before he was recognized to get it like so many of our military heroes sad. With my dad being in the military my heart always is soft to our military men, women that’s in harm’s way, and to their families that sacrifice so much to make it possible to protect and keep our country free. Let me say THANK –YOU!
Our Military are men and women of honor they love their country and will protect it because they are called to do so. As long as we have a Commander and Chief that backs them.
This is one man’s journey from a childhood to the military; his journey isn’t an easy one so hold on as you travel the rocky road to find out what God has in store for him. Along the way it gets bumpy and some smooth but always God is amongst him.
After Roy told Mr. Haddock his story of feeling bad about some things he did and good about others. Mr. Haddock told Roy the paths he took was necessary to build his life—God doesn’t make mistakes “we do”, God just builds on our mistakes. Roy was Mexican and Yaqui Indian the most fierce of warriors. Roy was proud of his lineage; As he should be.
Roy joined the guards at age 17 at age 19 he joined the army. The code of West Point was: “I do not lie, cheat or steal nor tolerate those that do.” In the story you’ll find out this is a code that became very important to Roy matter-in-fact he lived by it. Although Roy was always taught this as he grew up it hit home when he saw it on a plaque in an office. This will pay off throughout his life.
As his journey goes on into the Vietnam War to rescue a Special Force Team—your heart will pound, you’ll hold your breath and pretty soon you’ll find yourself in tears praying.
This story is to be saluted and honored as a reminder of our heroes like Roy and so many have been forgotten in the pages of our minds.
I recommend this book highly it’s a page turner. Eric Blehm is an author that paints a picture you can see with every stroke of his pen.
