God in the Foxhole
God in the Foxhole

Charles Branch, March 27, 2015

God removes our fear. The stories included here, and elsewhere (other books note Dave Richardson's "Jolly Green" rescue helicopter being bathed in a white light while hovering for a pickup with the light brighter the worse the situarion was, events witnessed by the escorting A-1 Sandy pilots; "Horse Soldiers" and Ed Macy's books also note the ability to function under extreme duress with calmness and without fear)include the story of Chaplain O'Neill's "Weather Prayer" and "Training Letter No. 5", written for the U.S. 3rd Army at the request of Gen. George S. Patton, and the real story and lyrics of "Taps". Strange things happen in grace, by faith. Outstanding book, and I'm passing it on by request to a friend and CRE lay pastor.

Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II by Vicki Croke
Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II

Charles Branch, December 23, 2014

This is the amazing story of James Howard Williams, a World War I veteran who survived the fighting, traveling to Burma in 1920 to become a "forest man" with the teak company. He found his calling as an "elephant wallah", establishing a humane training academy for company elephants. As World War II approached Burma, he considered returning to Royal Army service in England, but reconsidered, as his Burma knowledge could be more useful. It was, as "Elephant Billy" joined the Royal Army, working behind enemy lines with the Special Operations Executive to form Elephant Company No. 1, which may have numbered more than one thousand at times, and played a critical role in the outcome of the war in Burma. Amazing animals!

Boy on Ice: The Life and Death of Derek Boogaard by John Branch

Charles Branch, October 3, 2014

A worthy read probing the depths of the impacts on players of professional sports, and the competition driven by dollars in marketing to an industry of television, radio, stadiums, arenas, newspapers, internet and other exposures. This profile of the life of one player is illustrative of the impact of "contact" sport on the life and body. Perhaps we should add a new category to sports: "Impact" and "Non-Impact" to that of "contact" and "non-contact" sports. Are we on the road to "Cannonball Run"?
