Soldier-Artist: Man of War, Drawn to Peace

By Julius Z Farago
Soldier-Artist is a compelling, first-hand account of one man's yearning for freedom from Nazi and Communist dictatorships-how he crashed the Iron Curtain and lived in refugee camps until immigrating to the U.S. where he was offered freedom and unlimited opportunities. Author Julius Z. Farago volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army Special Forces and retired as a master sergeant. He always believed in the Green Berets' motto, "Liberate the Oppressed!" Throughout his life, God protected Farago from harm and blessed him richly. After his military career, and as a result of reading the Bible, he became a caricature artist and achieved the success promised by the Creator. Some of his artwork is included in this book. Someone once said, "Freedom is not free, and it is only available to those who protect it!" Readers of Soldier-Artist will be challenged and encouraged to be vigilant against oppressive political power-seekers. ---------- Julius Z. Farago was born in 1930 in Ethiopia, the son of a Hungarian Army captain and an undisclosed mother. He was educated in Budapest, Hungary; sought freedom in the West; crashed the Communist border under fi re at age eighteen; lived two years in refugee camps; and entered the U.S. in 1950. Drafted into the U.S. Army in 1951, he fought twice in Korea; trained recruits at Fort Ord, California; volunteered for airborne duty with the 82nd Airborne Division; and served ten years as a Green Beret in the U.S. Army Special Forces. His duty in Special Forces included his fi rst tour in Vietnam as part of the CIDG program, and a second tour with SOG. He also served two tours in Berlin, Germany. Farago earned a Purple Heart and two Bronze Stars among his many military awards. He retired from the U.S. Army in 1971 and has pursued successful cartooning and caricature art for over 29 years... and counting. Farago now resides in the woods of North Carolina with his devoted wife Jolene.
