Claude Thomas served as a helicopter crew chief in Vietnam and was shot down on five separate occasions. Wounded, he left the US Army with an honorable discharge in 1968. He became a Zen priest in 1995 and now works for peace through the Zaltho Foundation.
“In 1990, after more than 20 years of misery, he attended a meditation retreat for Vietnam vets led by the Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and it changed his life.” – Publishers Weekly
