A TIMELY REMINDER FOR TODAY'S WORLD
Peace, not war, is the ultimate answer to human conflict.
Some people are called to stand up and say "Hell, No" to war, despite the personal cost. Set against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s, this remarkable memoir details the author's experience as a conscript in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Jerry Gioglio relates with compelling honesty his struggles to understand and embody his working-class , Catholic upbringing while responding to civil rights challenges, the military draft, and the dehumanizing aspects of military training.
This insightful book is relevant to all present and future civilians and members of armed forces throughout the world grappling with the very real questions of personal morality when it comes to involvement in making war... and building peace.
