“Many times I could have been killed. It never happened and I’ve never been in a hospital,” writes Cox. “A priest told me that everyone is given an angel, and after that, I thought about my angel and how he or she has been overworked.”

In his poignant memoir, “I love my Angel: Front Line War II Infantryman 2nd Louie” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Walter Clay Cox Jr., shares a lifetime of memories from his experiences in World War II and Korea and his career as a prominent lawyer in Kentucky.

Written candidly, “I love my Angel” begins with Cox’s childhood during the Great Depression. He learned the value of hard work through his parents, who strived to put food on the family’s table. When WWII broke out, Cox enlisted in the Army and was sent to Europe.

Upon his return, Cox became the first college graduate in his family and went on to practice law, later serving in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps in Korea. As an attorney, Cox became one of the founding members of a prestigious law firm in Lexington, Kentucky, and also held office as an elected police judge.

Through many battles and challenges, Cox relied on what he identifies as the strength of his guardian angel. His memoir serves as his testimonial to the power of hard work, determination and faith.

“Many times I could have been killed. It never happened and I’ve never been in a hospital,” writes Cox. “A priest told me that everyone is given an angel, and after that, I thought about my angel and how he or she has been overworked.”
