A WWII fighter pilot from southeast Iowa, USA, told his story yesterday at an Iowa Veterans Summit in hopes more veterans can be saved and find peace. Eighty-eight-year-old Jerry Yellin, of Fairfield, joined the service as an 18-year-old in February 1942. 'I flew P-51s in combat over Japan,' Yellin says. 'I flew with 16 guys who didn't come back.' When the war was over he had 'no purpose of living. I came home and I was an empty soul. I had no ambition, no direction.' Yellin says he 'wandered for 30 years' and suffered from addiction until he learned Transcendental Meditation in 1975 and 'got my life back'. It is a joy for Global Good News to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of Defence.

Matt Kelley, interviewing him on Radio Iowa before the Iowa Summit on 11 October, said that Mr Yellin, now the national co-chairman of Operation Warrior Wellness, was among the featured speakers at the summit in West Des Moines. The summit was convened to present research and clinical applications of Transcendental Meditation for reducing stress, PTSD, substance abuse, suicide, and depression, and enhancing resilience and performance.
