Private First Class R was an excellent soldier so it was unlike him to be late. When he came in a few minutes later I could see by the grim look on his face that something was terribly wrong. He immediately began to cry and tell me that his wife had miscarried the child they had so badly wanted. I had never seen anyone cry as much as he did that morning and one box of tissues simply was not enough. After a while, the front of his uniform was soaked from his many tears, and I felt horrible seeing him suffer. It was one of those times when I would have moved Heaven and Earth if I could have but I could not. It humbled me because I wanted to order someone to do something to fix the problem, but this time it would not be that simple. I had always taken pride in looking out for the welfare of the soldiers in my charge but this time was different; I knew I was not a miracle worker but I felt I had let him down because as much as I wanted to, I did not have the power to bring back his baby. It was the worst day of my Army career because a good soldier who looked up to me for wisdom and guidance was in peril, and there was nothing I could do. I felt like a weakened Superman hopelessly dragging his feet through a field of Kryptonite, because there I was with all my rank and power that the Army had entrusted in me, but I was useless to him.

This story depicts the adventures of a young man who was born in a humble beginning, and was reared by his mother as a single child upon his fathers demise when he was only three-years old. He was raised in the proximity of the Connecticut Shoreline which was convenient, and allowed him to learn the nature of Tides, Ocean currents, and boats which he enjoyed and studied in great detail. This young man eventually escaped his humble surroundings by volunteering to join the Army during the Korean War, and was quickly promoted to the rank of Sergeant because of his agility and natural abilities. These qualities in conjunction with additional specialized training, eventually allowed him to be inducted into a Special Forces unit of the United States, and earned him the Right to wear a Green Berea as a emblem of distinction. The saga of his Orient adventures eventually led him to marry a young Korean girl for political reasons, and a termed agreement with her father, which enabled him to purchase a sailboat in Hong-Kong upon his discharge from the Army, so to travel across the Pacific Ocean to the United States with his inexperienced Korean wife. Their adventurous journey included defending-themselves from Chinese Pirates along the way as they carried Six-Tons of Gold Bullion hidden in the Keel of their sailboat, and was used as Ballast. The young man eventually built an empire, and allowed him to amass a fortune which he shared liberally with his loyal friends and various associates who aided him in his quest. Loyalty and honesty became the backbone of his carefully structured organization. His vast fortune augmented over a period of time consisting of valuable land ownership, and high yielding stocks and bonds, and his agreement with his brides father allowed him to keep half of the Gold he had smuggled into the United States from the Far East. The finality of this young mans efforts became a striking distinction between his humble beginnings, and the financial empire he eventually built over a period of time.
