About the Book

This biography recounts the rich history of Lieutenant General (LTG) Jim Vaught. He served in the U.S. Army for thirty-eight distinguished years with deployments to World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. More than just a military man, he was also a devoted husband, great-grandfather, and public servant. His life was often filled with difficult missions, challenges, and unfavorable odds. However, he “Soldiered On” and often devised innovative solutions to solve complex problems.
