Ty Whelan had never been outside of Utah before being called to serve a mission to the Australia mission in 1966. Having been inactive most of his youth he had a lot of catching up to do.
After serving an honorable mission Ty learned that he could get his education paid for by enlisting in the military. So he did just that… but as many often find out, the military is a lot harsher than they expect.
Sitting out on a hot dusty hill in Vietnam after days of waiting for the payload, Ty receives a surprise postcard that will give him deep pause and reverence for his mission for the rest of his life…
Enjoy this conversation with Ty Whelan!
