Donald Bartling’s book “For Country” contains his personal experiences of serving in the Korean War as he examines the past and connects it with current events.

Elements in Bartling’s story include his transition from civilian to soldier, the duties he had to carry out during the war, and the men he served with as they worked as a team toward common goals.

“In particular, I address the value of the chaplaincy during my experience in the war because being exposed to faith-based resources provides a balance for soldiers in need of religious guidance,” Bartling said when asked about the current trend of reducing presence of religion in the US military.

With his experiences as a veteran, Bartling feels that many of the lessons he learned are still applicable in today’s world.

“I feel it is important to take North Korea’s threats very seriously as we continue to see the strife continuing among North and South Korea,” Bartling said. “We must not doubt the country’s capabilities.”

“For Country” is a useful book for readers to gain a better understanding of what it means to be in the military, including the sacrifices soldiers have made in the past and present in order to defend their nation.
