The Calling is the story of a child who grew up with a deep love for his country. A child who envisioned how great it would be to serve his country and dreamed of the day he would come marching home in a parade and have the "proverbial" girl run out from the crowd and throw her arms around him as she planted one right on the mouth.
It's the story of a Christian boy who turned against God and all he had been raised to believe. A boy who realized he had become what he hated most. A boy who waged a forty-year war against God. A boy who received the best training and weapons any country could offer, then came home to fight a war, a real war, in which he was not equipped to fight. A war his country never prepared him for. A young man who fought the only way he knew how, with drugs and alcohol. A young man who never got his parade, who came home to be spit on and have drinks poured over his precious uniform at the airport. A young man who felt as though the country he loved so much had betrayed him. A young man who, after three attempts to take his own life, and a series of "shock treatments" finally made his piece with God almost fifty years later. A man who finally realized that he had WON the war!
