This is a biography of a WW1 runner. The sacrifices and conditions of the war were immense. The story is compelling and educational. The character of the American Midwest soldier is shown for all of us to see how proud we should be of our soldiers.
Conrad Larson is the proud father of five sons. He was a farmer and a coach for basketball, baseball and football, a post secondary teacher, a lay preacher, truck driver, and jack of a lot of trades but master of none. While working for several major international companies he traveled to Europe and the Middle East for stints of work. The farming endeavers included a sheep operation, a beef cow operation, beef feedlot, managing a large dairy farm for a bank and developing a hydroponic growing facility for tomatoes in the northern climates. Coaching tournaments, playing sports and participation in many tournaments have been a passion. Conrad even competed in major league facilities, as did a couple of his sons. Writing this book was a real stretch for Conrad and has been a real emotional struggle and a great accomplishment.
He continues to be entrepreneurial in his endeavers which more closely identifies his life. He likes work and challenges of all kinds. Conrad enjoys the new lives of his grandchildren while watching his sons grow
