The Day God Showed Up by Gordon C. Helsel

In 1968, Sgt. Gordon Helsel was bleeding to death in Vietnam when God saved his life in a most surprising way. The U.S. Army awarded Helsel two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star Medal for his bravery and wounds sustained. Now Gordon Helsel has written his witness to American history “exactly as it happened.” His book, The Day God Showed Up, is a humble and uplifting tribute to God, Helsel's fallen and wounded friends and all Americans who put their lives on the line by serving our country – it’s Helsel's love story for his wife, God and country.

Thanks to Gordon C. Helsel for writing this uplifting book. It is so many things, I almost don't know where to begin. It's a love story, history and a tribute to God, family, friends and everyone who serves our country. All Americans should read The Day God Showed Up - and it's a quick leisurely read that I couldn't put down. Gordon Helsel was awarded 2 Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star, but he wrote: "It took Vietnam to make me see I had a duty to those who are less fortunate than me. I went to Vietnam a 19-year-old kid and returned a man with a purpose." It's an American classic. I hope that teachers will make it required reading, families will get it for their loved ones in the military and patriots will share it far and wide.
