Vietnam Navy Pilot Larry Malone on Living Your Best Life with Genma Holmes

Join Living Your Best Life as we celebrate our military heroes' journeys before and after their service to our country. Hear from men and women who are sons and daughters; husbands and wives; fathers and mothers; grandparents; siblings; and loyal friends. Hear members of the Marines, Army, Air Force, and Navy share personal stories and highlights from their military careers. All have roles that made them the "first" in many endeavors throughout their lives and in the military. We will hear about their rarely discussed acts of courage and sacrifice that embody servant leadership that will empower, inspire, and motivate listeners. 

On Saturday, July 6, 2013, tune in to hear retired Navy Captain Larry Malone, a former Vietnam pilot. Larry will share about being intrenched in his identity of being a pilot and living out his dreams while flying one of the most revered aircraft during the Vietnam era, the A-6 Intruder.



On one bombing mission, Larry's wing man asked if they would return alive?  Listen to Larry share why that question led him to give up his love of flying. Hear Larry share how he spent years after Vietnam questioning the "business of war". Hear his vulnerability as he tell us how he realized he was seeking forgiveness from wounds from were inflicted on his soul.

Larry will walk us through decades of spiritual brokenness and you will hear his joy as he shares his peace founded through his faith.  "It was that experience that brought me to the Lord," he says."The business of dropping bombs requires a thorough examination of what you are doing, and I had never made that examination. The need for forgiveness and inner peace led me to Jesus Christ."
