Preparedness Notes for Monday – November 12, 2018

November 12th, 1950 is the birthday of Corporal John Alan Coey (died 19 July 1975). He was the first American volunteer killed in Rhodesia.


  1. I was a freshman in college when a couple of dormmates went for the “Rhodesia Semester”, a year later came back wearing the now famous Be A Man Among Men The Rhodesian Army. Wow!still makes me envious, they lived!They really lived! Like the French Foreign Legion, these men had a life experience like none other.

  2. Can anyone recommend a good history book on this subject. I had a school friend whose father was a missionary in Northern Rhodesia in the 1960’s. I’ve always wanted to know more about what happened there at that time.
