9781516911288: All Enlisted: A Mormon Missionary in Austria During the Vietnam Era, Revised

In ALL ENLISTED, Dr. Saxey reviews his time as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Austria from 1969 to 1971, a pivotal era in his life. Serving during the closing years of the Vietnam War while his brother and contemporaries were in the military, he compares and contrasts their respective experiences. Despite obvious differences, both mission and military service are parts of the greater conflict of good and evil, persuasion and force, a conflict that continues to this day. ALL ENLISTED consists largely of excerpts from contemporaneous journals and letters, providing a unique perspective on a turbulent time in history. For the author, they are fond memories of inspiring teachers, constant companions, and the many Austrians he came to know and love. Topics discussed include World Wars I and II as well as the Cold War, Vietnam, and the War on Terror and Islamo-fascism. ALL ENLISTED gives insight into the life and work of Mormon missionaries in the early 1970s, Latter-day Saint doctrine, the power of religious conversion, missionary health, and "coming of age" in the shadow of war, with beautiful scenes of Austria as a backdrop. This revised edition contains clarifications, details, and additional photos which were not included in the original publication.

About the Author:

Growing up in the idyllic 1950s Pacific Northwest, Roderick Saxey was part of the Class of 1968, famously associated with Woodstock, drugs, and the anti-war movement. His conservative upbringing and teenage conversion to Mormonism guided him in a different direction that ultimately led to service in Austria as a missionary. There he learned to love his work, his companions, and the Austrians, who at that time were still suffering from the lingering aftermath of World War II and the postwar period. Meanwhile his older brother was serving in Vietnam and his parents were witnessing the turmoil of a nation divided. After his mission he raised a family, studied Medicine at George Washington University, and served in the United States Air Force. Doctor Saxey is currently a Diagnostic Radiologist near Seattle, Washington. He has published a number of essays and other works, including a book in 1994 titled THE FEDERALIST: EXCERPTS AND COMMENTARY.
