Angels in Afghanistan

An inside look of Joseph Perez Jr., a young Army infantry officer in his early 20s who is preparing to deploy to Afghanistan. He will serve as a platoon leader ultimately responsible for the lives and welfare of the soldiers in his platoon.

During his first deployment to Afghanistan, then-1LT Perez saw two angels above a friend who was about to go on a combat patrol. Moments later, his friend was struck by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). This was the first of several times Perez would see angels in the spiritual realm. Perez recounts vivid descriptions of infantry combat patrols and near-misses with IEDs while in Afghanistan.

Though Perez shares these experiences and his life’s journey, this book is not about him; rather it is a message of hope and faith. His story shows that it’s okay to be a Christian no matter the circumstances.

It turns out that it was faith and following God that got him through it.
