We live in a time of growing sin and dishonor. In fact, our society is trying to make sin into something “honorable and desirable.”
At a recent Fatima home visitation, one lady put it like this: “The world is becoming a haunted house.”
To fight back, to keep our sanity, to save our souls, we must keep on deepening our convictions that virtue and honor go hand and hand.
For this purpose, I know nothing better than reading the magnificent book An American Knight.

“Nothing in my life that has moved me more than Colonel John Ripley’s story as narrated in An American Knight…” (“Rocky” Bringas, El Paso, TX)
And now that homosexuals are allowed to openly serve in the military, the honorable life of war hero Colonel John W. Ripley is more inspiring and important than ever.
My colleague Norman Fulkerson has written An American Knight, which is the first and only cradle-to-grave biography about this Marine Corps legend and Navy Cross recipient.
This book also narrates his moral battles against sending American women into combat and allowing homosexuals to openly serve in the military. He had guts on and off the battlefield.
Once you start this book, you won’t put it down.
This is the true story of how one man stopped the largest Communist offensive of the entire Vietnam War. He blew up the Dong Ha Bridge during the Easter Offensive. This halted a column of 30,000 enemy troops and 200 Soviet-made tanks dead in their tracks.
Colonel Ripley’s heroism extended beyond the battlefield, however, and encompassed his private life also.
When Hollywood producers proposed a movie deal Col. Ripley agreed as long as the actor portraying him would not be shown having affairs in Vietnam.
“I have never been unfaithful to my wife Moline,” he told the stunned Hollywood crowd, “and I never will be.”
An American Knight is more than a book. It’s part of a crusade to revive honor in America. Col. Ripley is the role model we knew had to exist.
