Only a Soldier Understands: Book 5: Lessons I Learned in the Army
Lessons I Learned in the Army
Clay Lifto knows what it’s like to be a soldier – not the great hero, but an ordinary guy performing his duty, raising his family and trying to live the Christian life. In this 5th book in his series, Only A Soldier Understands, he becomes a bit reflective in his personal story as he shares some life lessons he learned as he enters the Army a second time. He branches out into a new phase of his military experience, past the Middle East, past Vietnam, and into the spy games of the European Cold War. As the chapters of Clay’s life continue, he shares amazing things that can happen in a soldier’s life when he makes a commitment. Not a lecture, not a Bible study, just a personal story of God’s grace. Clay explores not only the physical realities of deployment, but also the emotional and psychological growth and challenges that come from experiences ranging from finding the woman of his life to frustrations with civilian life to the relationship with his family back home to breaking up with his wife to surrendering to the truth about himself and his own life to getting into a job far over his head to finding his true calling in life. As Clay’s stories bring back memories of your own experience, each chapter ends with a reflection of a major lesson in life that he learned – maybe a lesson you could apply to your own personal journey in life. The Only a Soldier Understands series is for the new recruit, the career soldier, and the veteran. It’s for anyone who has served in the military—and they are great books to share with friends, to exchange stories and thoughts. You don’t even need to read this book in chronological order...the Table of Contents provides detailed guidance if you’d like to target a specific area of your career. And if you enjoy this book, go back and read Books 1, 2, 3, and 4 in the series, and look forward to new books by Clay Lifto, coming soon.
