Honoring the American Soldier featuring Luke Liberty: Episode 116

October 30, 2023

In this heartfelt episode, we are joined by a remarkable guest, Luke Liberty, who has an extraordinary and deeply inspiring life story. Luke, as he describes it, was "made in Vietnam but assembled by Americans." Born in 1969 during the Vietnam War, his early years were marked by a remarkable journey of survival and resilience. His mother led their escape from Saigon to the sea, where they eventually boarded a fishing boat, only to be rescued by the US Navy in international waters. Luke's voyage to America was filled with stops in places like the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii, California, and Pennsylvania "Dutch Country," celebrating his seventh birthday along the way.

Luke's life story is a testament to the power of hope and the unwavering belief in the goodness of the American spirit. He firmly believes that American soldiers brought a taste of heaven into his life by bringing "America to his doorstep." Throughout this episode, you will hear how Luke's life was forever changed when he and his mother were sponsored by a WW2 veteran and his wife from Fort Indian Town Gap in Annville, PA, in 1975. This remarkable journey instilled in Luke an unshakable belief that America won the Vietnam War, not through conventional victory, but through the hearts and minds of those who witnessed the soldiers' actions. Luke's gratitude and dedication to honoring American soldiers, First Responders, and Veterans are truly inspiring. Tune in to hear his incredible story and his mission to express his gratitude to all Americans for the gift of liberty in his life.
