About the Book

Surviving War and Crime traces N. Pat Miller’s journey from a quiet life in suburban Washington, D.C., to the jungles of South Vietnam, and to the streets of America, where he was a police officer for twenty-eight years.

Depicted mostly in short stories and anecdotes, the author gives readers a behind-the-scenes look of what it means to be a soldier and police officer. Staff Sergeant Miller led a platoon of soldiers through the horrors and hardships of combat. When he returned home from the war, Officer Miller was chosen to start a plainclothes unit that targeted burglaries, robberies, and other crimes in the crime-ridden suburbs of Washington, D.C. Years of unmatched success led to the formation of a permanent tactical, investigative unit.

First in uniform, then a detective, the author went on to become a homicide investigator, concluding his career as the sergeant in charge of the Homicide Cold Case Unit.

Throughout Miller’s journey, his Christian faith led him to realize that God played a critical role in ensuring that he not only survived but thrived.
