Book: Locked Up With God – Amazon; I was shot down and rescued the first time with Capt Charlie Neel. The USAF sent now Major Charlie Neel and his wonderful wife Linda to bring my wife Sandy to meet the aircraft that flew us home from North Vietnam to Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. There the video starts as I meet my youngest brother, Peter, my Dad, my Mom, my sisters Mary Ann, Jeannie and Faith, my daughters Dawn and Sheri, and my sister’s husbands. Major Neel took this video in March of 1973. Please read my new book, “Locked Up With God,” available on Amazon, for real detail. I also speak professionally now on faith, family, teamwork, leadership and the POW and combat experiences for a wide variety of audiences.
