Freedom Pagoda delivers the inside view of a young man’s life inside the military, serving in a foreign country, and facing the challanges of life and love for the first time. While it gives you a good look inside the military and political workings of warring parties, it also is reflective of one man’s life that is touching, raw and real. It’s a boy becomes a man story that will leave you wondering when the sequel will be available.

Jim Mazour: I recommend this book to all JSA veterans. It will bring back lots of memories, especially for those who served in the unit during the early 1970’s time period.
