Ed DeVos

North Georgia Veterans to host author, decorated vet Ed DeVos

By Barbara Balducci

The North Georgia Veterans September meeting/luncheon will be held Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 11:30 a.m. in the Mountains Grille at the clubhouse. The guest speaker is Ed DeVos a highly decorated retired U.S. Army officer and author of several Christian historical fiction books.

His presentation will be about his latest book “Family of Warriors,” a story of courage and valor, of integrity and loyalty, of fortitude and perseverance. This is a story of five brothers who serve in five different combat areas during World War II and about their love for their country and for their fellow soldiers.

DeVos spoke last year at an NGV meeting about his third book, “Revenge at Kings Mountain,” about a Revolutionary War battle and was very well received.

He graduated from Florida Southern College in 1969 and served his country for more than 20 years as an infantry officer in both state-side and overseas assignments. During those years he was assigned to four US Army battalions and was an advisor to several Vietnamese infantry battalions.

He is the recipient of the Silver Star medal with one oak leaf cluster as well as numerous other military awards and decorations. After his retirement from the Army, he became a self-employed businessman for over 17 years in the financial services industry where he helped hundreds of families with their insurance and investment needs.

In 2006, Ed and his wife Susan moved to McCormick, S. C. where he now spends the majority of his time writing Christian historical novels and speaking to church, veterans, and social groups. He has written three other books: “The Stain,” a book about the Centurion at the Cross; “The Chaplain’s Cross,” a World War II air battle in the Pacific; “Revenge at Kings Mountain,” about a significant Revolutionary War battle. All of these books are about strong men; men who demonstrate integrity and honor; courage and valor. All of his books are available in local and national outlets.

The North Georgia Veterans organization is open to all veterans, anyone who has served in any branch of service, in any capacity, for any period of time. All that is required is an honorable discharge. To attend our meetings/luncheon just register on our website: ngvets.org.
