About the Author

JD is a Colorado native, married with two sons, a service disabled Vietnam War veteran, having served five tours on swift boats. A graduate of the University of Denver with a dual degree in finance and real estate and currently owns a nationwide business in Denver. Drafted To Serve is his first book, written after three years of nearly full-time effort, which he felt compelled to write and complete, in order to tell the world what happened when Pope John Paul II came to Denver in 1993.

JD and his companion originally agreed to tell no one but the Catholic Church of the events that had taken place. They felt that due to the incredible nature of the story neither wished to step into the spotlight and have their lives turned upside down by the attention the story was certain to generate.

Share in JD's adventure as we watch God's grace and love shape the world through Pope John Paul II during his visit to Denver, Colorado in 1993 during world Youth Day VIII.
