Whether it be the phoenix rising up from the ashes or Jesus resurrecting from the grave, humans have long been inspired by people who have endured the unimaginable.

"To this day, I gauge every hard thing I go through with, 'Is it as bad as Vietnam?'"



Rodney Honeycutt

Rodney got married in August 1971 and then two months later was drafted into the Army, headed for certain danger and an uncertain future in Vietnam. He learned to rely on faith, friendship, and vulnerability to endure the long months away. Though few of us have (or will) experience being drafted into combat, Rodney's story is an inspiration to anyone who has faced a challenge with uncertain outcomes.
