Author Robert R. Grant's New Book, 'Footprints in the Sand' is a Personal Memoir Following the Terrifying Events of Vietnam to the Present

Recent release "Footprints in the Sand" from Covenant Books author Robert R. Grant is a memoir written of his life from the early loss of his father, to being drafted in Vietnam, where his life flashed before his eyes, to present day, when his affairs are in order and he worships the Lord.

Robert R. Grant, a Vietnam veteran and football coach, has completed his new book, "Footprints in the Sand": a personal memoir.

Grant shares, "As I walk down the path of life, I find that many things around me affect the way I think and the decisions I make. One of the biggest effects of my life was the night of the Tet Offensive in Vietnam in 1968. At 4:00 a.m., our bomb dump blew up, and our fuel cell, with fuel for three squadrons of aircraft, blew up. Our perimeter was breached. I thought I was going to check out. I made a promise to the good Lord that I would be a productive member of society. He has been a big part of every decision I have made. I know that the day comes. I don't meet His standard or requirements. He will dial up my number. 

"Today, at age seventy-five years old, I am proud to have accomplished such things as:
Joining the U.S. Marine Corps: Vietnam 1967-1968
Becoming a Football coach
Mentoring a young man through Big Brothers of America
Becoming a Fireman in Eden Prairie
Working for the Governor on the E.R.C. (Emergency Response Commission)
Being the first search team member of C.E.R.T.
Raising $618,000 for the Veterans Memorial Committee
Becoming a Shriner
Joining the Honor Guard in Cannon Falls, MN

"Also, my doctor told me to get my life in order. I made out my will. And I made up a living will. I set up and paid for my funeral, sold everything I didn't need. When the time comes to meet my maker, I will thank Him for allowing me to continue down my path of life. Only then will I know how He feels about my journey."
