(#1885) John V (South Berlin, MA)
7/10/1981 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 6th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 24 years since 1957, John is one of the best loved speakers in the WeJoy collection.

His message is simple and clear.

Known as John the Indian, he went from washing dishes in a lumber camp in Maine, to washing dishes in the Army, to drunken bar fighter to sober "president in my own company."

He came into AA at age 29 with no teeth and no wife. He got them back in that order.

Very funny and powerful - a real favorite.
