       A Soldier Without A Country tells the story of Sgt. Carlis Calvin's struggle to survive after he was given a dishonorable discharge by his captain, after he was accused of stealing approximately $3.00 worth of food from his mess hall.

     After he served several months in the stockade, he was stripped of his medals and uniform and was told not to come back on the post again. He endured hardships for forty-seven years. In 1996 President Bill Clinton restored his honorable discharge and his medals were returned.
