(#1256) Lyle P (Stockbridge, GA)
7/17/2009 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 34th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Author of Grounded in the Big Book, Lyle's story of "how did they get from there to here?" is remarkable and heartwarming.

It took a complete psychic change.

Native American born and raised, he joined the Marines and, through a series of wonderful events, became a fighter pilot.

He had long drank alcohol but was not a problem drinker.

He left the Corps to devote more time to his family. He began to fly commercial jets.

A series of events coincided with his increased drinking until it suddenly made the national news.

Disgrace, public humiliation, despair, prison time turned through practicing the Principles and faith in a Higher Power, to gratitude, wonder and awe.
