About the Book

This is the story of Fritz’s goals and aspirations and how his boyhood dreams led him to the Naval Academy, Naval Flight Training, and to the skies over North Vietnam. Join him as he describes the thrill and challenges of flying off and onto an aircraft carrier, entering combat in the world’s foremost fighter, the frustrations of limited objectives and obstructive rules of engagement, and the pivotal event that changed his life forever.
He shares the disillusionment, anger, and sense of betrayal that so many veterans experienced, as a result of our nation’s failure of leadership. With the death of that boyhood dream came a search for meaning. This search eventually led to truth, redemption, the discovery of purpose in this life, and hope for the life to come.
Find how you too can experience that same life change. He describes how he has found answers to life’s greatest questions and how those answers address every area of life. With a new world view based on Truth, Fritz speaks to the issues of purpose, relationships, finances, suffering, and leaving a legacy.
