Home Found is a warm-spirited and unsentimental look back at one mans journey to manhood during the Second World War and beyond. Orphaned at the age of one and made of ward of the state of Indiana, Samuel L. Bennett exchanged the farms of the Midwest for the danger and adventure of life in the United States Army. Along the way he would fight on the battlefields of World War II and the Korean War and become a close friend of the Dutch royal family. Home Found is the impressive personal account of a career military man sprinkled with vignettes about home, family, and friends.
