Joining the army seemed the farthest thing from Douglas Milliken's mind, especially with his childhood growing up as an Army brat. However, his draft into the Vietnam War, and becoming an infantry squad leader in the Fourth Infantry Division, brought the army to him. His autobiography, How One Lost Warrior Was Transformed, comprises his military testimony and memories of leading troops into notorious war zones such as Dak Payou Valley and Ho Chi Minh Trail in Cambodia. Douglas recounts with vivid detail the daily challenges his army platoon endured as they faced death on the battlefield regularly, a band of brothers until the end. Once discharged from war, he settled into a working and family life until depression triggered from his war experiences caused unrest in his life. It wasn't until he yielded to the loving pursuit of God for his heart that peace and hopefulness returned to him again.
