Time spent in service to country, community, and family is never wasted nor forgotten. In 1978 Dick Haggmark died at the age of forty-seven after spending two and a half years in a semi-comatose state, going from hospital to nursing home to veteran's hospital. He was injured at work and then suffered a massive heart attack and stroke that left him unable to speak or walk. When he was in his early twenties, he joined the army. As a civilian, he served as a volunteer fireman and auxiliary policeman for over twenty years. Just One Soldier is a book that contains eighty letters written by Dick in 1954 to his family while stationed in Japan. The book also contains the words of a diary written by Dick's mother, covering the two and a half years just prior to his death. Photos, family memories, author commentary, and newspaper clippings are also included in the book. Get to know the young man through the letters home from just one soldier.
