HELEN GREENE LEIGH, after being awakened every hour on the hour one summer night, gladly agreed to follow God’s instructions for her to share with the world Pharis’ personal experiences as a Korean POW and his miraculous survival. She spent the next year interviewing her oldest brother, Pharis, and researching the Korean War.
This is the only book she has written. As an entrepreneur, she has founded an insurance agency, a wholesale business, and an underground utility construction company.
As a single parent, Helen reared a daughter, Dawn, and a son, Derek. The three live in Charlotte, North Carolina. She boasts of five wonderful and amazing grandchildren. The eldest, Jeffrey, served five years in the US Army and deployed to Iraq for fifteen months. Amanda landed a full basketball scholarship at UNCG and continues to pursue her dream of playing in the WNBA. Megan, Jessey, and Kody are young adults who are searching for their own unique destinies.
