According to pastor and spiritual director Casey Tygrett, how we hold and carry our memories—good and bad—is a part of what forms us spiritually. In this way we have a common bond with the people of Scripture who also had a sensory life. In these pages Tygrett explores the power of memory and offers biblical texts and practices to guide us in bringing our memories to God for spiritual transformation.

AS I RECALL, is a series of short stories recalling personal experiences of the author when a young Marine serving in Korea. Unlike most memoirs describing the horrors of war Tsegeletos describes the sights, sounds and what is most fascinating, the thoughts that ran through his mind during each incident. An occasional quip added while engaged in life threatening action, brings to the reader lighthearted relief to what at the very least is serious business indeed. At the age of 17, George along with many of his high school friends joined a Marine reserve unit located close to home. 1950 and half way around the globe North Korea invaded South Korea, but to these young Marines it seemed too far away to be of much concern. Looking forward to their graduation, summer vacation and beginning a new career, whether college or work, their world is suddenly turned upside down when they are rushed into a very uncertain military future. From his first step on North Korean soil through each story that follows, including the final narrative describing the experience of survival in the cold frozen environment during the epic Chosin Reservoir Campaign, you will be taking each step with him. Included are illustrations interspersed between stories and copies of actual letters sent home. The book leaves you with a true picture of life in a foxhole as seen through the eyes of a young Marine. Tsegeletos will hold the readers attention and win the hearts of all moms with a young son in the U.S. Marines.

The purpose of this book is simply to share with the readers the events—some very intense—that strongly impacted my life. It is written directly from my memory; therefore, some dates might not be exact, but the events are as clear in my mind as at the time of their occurrence. It’s a journey from oppression to freedom and a profound expression of gratitude to Spain, which made the journey faster and easier by granting our visas in less than four hours and allowed us to stay in that beautiful and hospitable country for almost five months, and to our adoptive motherland, the United States of America, for welcoming us to the land of the free and the home of the brave. The very difficult situations described in this book had a positive aspect, because each one of them made our character stronger and our faith firmer as a gift from God, whose power and mercy we felt every time there was a problem that we could not solve in our own. It is not necessary to add anything else at this time. The book presents a clear narrative of the journey where the reader may also find diversity—a recently used and abused concept—at work. I let the reader discover the character-building struggles and the spiritual growth that was directly proportional to the intensity of the hardships and overt or covert persecution. As Father Mérito González said in Spain during a homily: “How do we know our strengths without tests and trials?” Let’s make faith, hope and love the most important pillars of life and we will find that with God we can cross raging waters walking on a bridge of rotten wood. Enjoy!

As I Recall is a collection of humorous and heartfelt short stories and poetry sharing moments from a life full of laughter and love. Author Ray Dillard has long wanted to record these memories of his life for family and friends; however, early in the process, he discovered more than the need to create a personal legacy for his family. He found a new voice that told colorful and descriptive stories and provided an inspiring message. He attributes his understanding of the human spirit and its need for nourishment to his experiences as a son, brother, husband, father, and teacher. The collection is divided into two parts: part one, consisting of short stories drawn from Dillard’s life; and part two, presenting his poetry. In both, he captures the essence of the important and interesting experiences of his life thus far. His imagery and tone are clear in the following excerpt from a longer poem about his father: When We Were Young He left for work each morning, Wearing steel-toed boots and a tin hat. He took long strides that were three times The length of mine. In one hand he carried a lunch pail and a thermos. The other hand was empty, Like his wallet. Bye-Bye Daddy ...
