"Once we die, all that remains are the remembrances of what we've done while we were here..."

It is because of this belief that John Gilman felt compelled to put into his own words his life story - and quite a story it is. This book offers accounts of a man who in high school led a successful student strike in support of a badly needed new school building; who received the Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and Cluster, and a special citation from President Roosevelt for his defense of freedom during World War II; who proudly proclaimed his progressive beliefs in the face of constant harassment; who dared the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1950's to question his patriotism; and who has spent a lifetime defending those who have been unjustly persecuted.

Foot Soldier for Peace and Justice is a bluntly told story of one man's efforts to make a difference in the world.
