From Prosperity to Adversity
By: Curtis L. Sangster


About the Book


A prisoner, addict, ex-Marine, and now a devout Christian, Curtis L. Sangster has made his share of mistakes in life. Inspired to enter the U.S. Military by his father, an Army veteran, Curtis L. Sangster got in top-notch shape and joined the Marine Corps. He assumed he was physically and mentally prepared to serve his country and to face any battle. To his surprise, during Operation Eastern Exit—the January 1991 military evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Mogadishu, Somalia—Sangster realized that although he was physically prepared, he wasn’t mentally prepared. His emotions were in overdrive, and he missed his family, his girlfriend, and his home.
In this memoir, Sangster chronicles with admirable candor his astonishing life story which involves a troubled childhood, drug addiction, compulsive sexual behavior, a dishonorable discharge, and a prison term. Now a born-again Christian, Sangster reflects on his life and how overcoming psychological trauma changed it for the better.
