I can’t imagine the hardships and emotions of having my husband or father leave for an extended period of time to go to war. I can’t fathom the fear and anxiety that would plague every thought and action.
But many do it. Including my own grandfather. Now a retired Army colonel, Ray Bills, left his five sons and young wife to serve an 11 month tour in Vietnam in 1969. This is his inspirational story of how he kept in touch with his sons using the power of reading.
Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for sharing your amazing story. Loves!
This story will also run in the Deseret News Life/Family Section on Monday, November 7. Book Matters has been somewhat syndicated and will now appear on ksl.com and the Deseret News. Very exciting!
