The Fightin’ Preacher

A True American Hero – “The Fightin’ Preacher”

His God called him to preach.
His country called him to fight.
His men called him …
“The Fightin’ Preacher”

Colonel Logan E. Weston, U.S. Army (Deceased) was a veteran of three wars: World War II, Korean and Vietnam. He went from Guadalcanal and new Georgia in World War II, to volunteer with the renowned “Merrill’s Marauders” in Burma, through Korea with the  “Wolfhounds” and onto the build-up of the Vietnam War. Drafted out of Bible College, his faith in God sustained him even was he was deep in enemy country. His unwavering devotion to the God he loved and the country he served earned him a larger-than-life reputation and the undying devotion from his men. A very heavily decorated war hero in U.S. military history he has received many awards and citations. His commendations included the Distinguished Service Cross, Legion of Merit, Silver Stars, Bronze Stars, Purple Hearts, and Combat Infantryman Badges, and more. Col. Weston is a member of the Inaugural class of the U.S. Army Ranger Hall of Fame at Fort Benning, GA. This is the true and inspiring story of the honor,  courage and faith of a great American hero.

“This is a story of Duty and Honor, Sacrifice and Accomplishment of a great American Patriot. Colonel Weston survived 3 wars under unbelievable and adverse circumstances. His faith in God sustained him throughout those trying times and he has been an inspiration to his men and his many comrades, his many friends, and his
family.” -CPT Phillip B. Piazza, USA, Original President of Merrill’s Marauder Association
