JD Wetterling, a ruling elder in the Presbyterian church in America, has written a book, No Time To Waste. As labors of love go, this one is at the top of my list, stated Wetterling.
No Time To Waste is a chilling combat memoir, a gripping gospel story—to hell and back and glory beyond by God’s grace alone. It’s a true tale of amazing grace at Pearl Harbor and Guadalcanal aboard the heavy cruiser USS San Francisco; under the South Pacific aboard the submarine USS Queenfish on all five victorious war patrols; over the Ho Chi Minh Trail in an F-100; and in the hearts of two veterans—cultural curmudgeons—long after their combat days were over.
John E. “Jack” Bennett (USNA ’41) was a former Reagan staffer, career nuclear submarine commander, and twice-wounded WW II vet. At 78, he was a much-involved patriot with a brilliant mind but a lost soul. Author JD Wetterling, a Presbyterian elder a generation younger, was a fighter pilot with 268 combat missions in the Vietnam War. They became best friends. Then, in a heartbeat, it was war again, with eternal consequences that dwarfed their shooting wars, and there was “no time to waste.”
