About the Book

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.

About the Author

Gordon Helsel lives in the small city of Poquoson, Virginia, his hometown for all but the first 10 years of his life and where he's served as fire chief, councilman, then mayor for 15 years, until he was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates. Since 1966, Gordon has been happily married to his high-school sweetheart, Joy. He’s also a former business owner whose legacy now thrives under his sons, Scott and Brian. Gordon and Joy are proud of Scott and Brian, their daughter by marriage, Brian's wife Christy, and their beautiful grandchildren, Wyatt Keith and Avery Elizabeth.
