Tom Faunce is no stranger to the horrors that await soldiers at war. After joining the United States Army back in the 1960s, he completed two tours of Vietnam. And although Faunce survived the war, many of his friends did not. When he returned to America, then, he became a Christian and began doing outreach work.

Later, in 2008, Faunce was conducting humanitarian work in Southeast Asia when he began to hear an odd rumor. Apparently, there was an elderly man living in the jungle who claimed to be an American soldier – left behind in Vietnam when the war had ended 33 years earlier.
