“A Soldier’s Reward”: a moving testimony of faith in the battlefield of life, is the creation of published author Joe Barrett, a native of East Tennessee raised in one of his grandfather’s farms. He is a retired police lieutenant who has served as a combat medic for the US troops in Korea in the 50s.

Barrett writes, “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 Lieutenant in Reno, Nevada 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. Hallelujah!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Joe Barrett’s new book is an uplifting, candid, and thought-provoking work that sees the big picture in the small details of life wherein God resides, looking out for his faithful.
