Adam Tousley is an Iraq combat veteran whose childhood ambition was to be a policeman in his home town of Zionsville, Indiana. The trajectory of his life changed dramatically after his Army discharge. Adam travelled with a mixed group of veterans to the historic battlefield of Khe Sanh, Vietnam and silently vowed to return someday to Iraq. The path of that return led through brutal genocide in Myanmar and crowded refugee camps of Bangladesh and culminated with Adam managing a humanitarian mission in Iraq where he interacted as an unarmed civilian with hostile militias determined to kill Americans.
A point of light is only visible against a dark background and courageous action in troubled times leads each of us to reach our own higher natures. Adam’s story is one of these inspiring points of light. (V, W)
