Book Description

Learn More About the Suffering of Men Who Go to War. 

“By this, we know love because He (Jesus) laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” John 3:16.

This story revolves around a young country boy named Raymond, who grew up in a small rural town in Tennessee.
Ray is a patriot and has always dreamed of serving his country.

In 1968 he was conscripted and joined the Marines to go and fight in Vietnam.
At first, he is excited to go, but soon he experiences war horrors. 

He witnesses death and destruction daily and is forced to participate in brutal combats that leave him emotionally scarred. 

As Ray’s tour of duty progresses, he begins to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
He struggles with flashbacks, nightmares, and anxiety and finds it difficult to adjust to civilian life when he returns home. 

Ray’s PTSD affects every aspect of his life, and he has trouble sleeping and maintaining relationships.
He becomes withdrawn and isolated, using alcohol and medical drugs to cope with his emotions and pain.
Knowing God loves him is his life jacket.
The story of Ray is a beautiful reminder of the sacrifices that men and women make when they go to war, and it is also a testament to faith’s strengths for those who struggle with mental health issues.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6.
