Raised on a farm with its back breaking work, I thought there ought to be a better way to make a living. One day I happened to pass by a recruiting office, thought this could be it. These men don't have to get up out of bed at three a.m. every morning. At this point, I joined the military. I became a combat medic and was sent to Korea. I was under the command of General Douglas MacArthur, general of the Army. One day, my group of men was ambushed and there were heavy casualties. During a period of a lull, I jumped into a jeep alone and headed out for a tour of the area. I found myself in a Chinese enemy camp. This unusual situation gave me a unique experience during the war. Uncertain of what was going to happen, after my discharge from the military, I went into law enforcement and retired after thirty plus years as a Lieutenant from the Reno, Nevada Police Department. Having been involved in numerous gun battles, I was again under the protection of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who granted me my final ultimate reward, a place in eternity, my heavenly home. Hallelujah! Uncertain of what was going to happen, after my discharge from the military, I went into law enforcement and retired after thirty plus years as a Lieutant in Reno, Neveda Police Department. Credit is given to Jesus Christ who has delivered me from many dangerous situations and granted me my final ultimate reward, a place in eternity, my heavenly home. Halleluijah!

I would like to acknowledge the help I have received in writing this book. From my wife, Jeanne, for her patience and time utilized to take my dictations and log them into her notebook. I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to my transcriber, Alondra Flores, in reference to grammatical correction and spelling. I have been encouraged by many others as they were researching dates, times, and numerous telephone calls to my daughter, Sharon, and my son, Steven. For the encouragement from Anna and Kathy, whom I dearly love, and all others who helped me realize how difficult it is for a blind person to write a book.

This book was written with the idea of being used as my testimonial to the reader.

Chapter 1: Growing Up

It was on February 23, 1932, when I came into this world. I was born at my grandfather James (Jim) Wallace’s home in the rolling hills of East Tennessee. My grandfather was a successful farm investor and livestock dealer. My father James (Frank) Franklin and mother went on to have four additional sons. In age, there was only a fifteen month-difference between my next younger brother and me. It was easy to understand how my grandparents were able to convince my parents to allow me to stay with them.

As the time rolled on, I became accustomed to living the lifestyle of royalty compared to the lifestyle my four younger brothers were living with mom and dad. My grandparents gave me my own horse, a flock of chickens, my dog, along with other farm animals that I wanted for myself. The numerous animals they gave me were taken off the market and were not for sale or for trade without my permission. It was unusual to give that authority to a small child, however it gave me assurance of ownership without worry of something that was mine being taken away. Another advantage I had was that my father’s two younger sisters both were unmarried school teachers that lived with my grandparents. This gave both of them the opportunity to spoil me. They did their part in helping me fulfill my
