From Communism to Christ!
Written by Richard John Kahler, Second Lieutenant of the International Brigade:
Some time in the 90’s, I, Pearl Sturgis, attended a little church in Airville, Pennsylvania. I met this guy named Richard John Kahler. During our controversy with the church over the newer Bible translations we left the church and started our private Bible Study group in our homes. There were only 5 of us but we had strong convictions that we would not use the newer translations as we were very much attached to our old family Bibles of the Authorized King James Version of 1611.
This happened around the same time that I discovered the truth about the Protestant Reformers and how in God’s Providence christians were led to America as they fled from religious persecution. The very reason they came to the new world was for freedom of worship.
They pursued the God given right to worship the Lord under the dictates of their own conscience. It was not to worship just any god but to worship the One and Only God and Savior who died for the whole world and to proclaim liberty for all the inhabitants thereof, as the Lord commanded in Leviticus 25:10 which is engraved on our Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to this day (June 2017).
During our Bible Study Richard (Dick) Kahler gave all 5 of us a copy of his testimony which he had typed by hand and never published. I am so ashamed to say that I stuck this little 18 page booklet away in my book shelf and never read it until today, June 9,2017. There was so much going on at that time (1990’s) as we were building our house and starting our own Landscaping business. Eventually the little Bible Study group broke up and we moved to different churches.
I heard Dick had died and I was invited to the service. I regret deeply that I did not attend. I never knew much about Dick until today after reading his remarkable testimony. I remember him telling the stories of how he was suppose to kill and bury the victims and instead he hid them. For some odd reason I didn’t have sense enough to pay attention back then. Now I will do the Daily Bits of his AMAZING testimony by submitting word for word the testimony of Lieutenant Richard John Kahler from Red Lion, Pennsylvania......”From Communism to Christ:”

Bite#23,Crossing the EBRO River:
A few days later 3 or 4 officers came into the camp and was asking questions but some of the men were afraid to talk. One of the officers said, “Don’t be afraid to talk up. We are here unofficially but we will be back officially and if this man as much as talks mean to you he will wish he had not been born.” The men started to tell, one by one after another, and Kopic denied it and said he was good to his men but the officer told him if he had treated his men good they would speak well of him.
A few days later the officers returned. they assembled the men together and asked if anyone had anything to say in defense of or against Commander Kopic. One by one they told their story and Kopic kept trying to answer but the officer stopped him saying, “You will have your chance to speak.” After hearing a good many men the officer asked Kopic what he had to say. Kopic cried like a baby and told the officer what a good soldier he was.
Then the Top Ranking Officer stepped forward and spit in Kopic’s face and slapped him in the face and pulled his stripes off his arm and off his hat and placed him under arrest. These officers were like the FBI or the Intelligence Services. They sentenced Kopic to be shot but his brother served in the 15th Brigade with good service and pleaded for lenience for him.
Afterwards we were sent to the Ebro River Offensive. If we could cross the Ebro River and put the enemy on the run we may shorten the days till we could go home. They had military experts on both sides of the river from United States, Canada, England, France, and other countries. They came to the conclusion that whoever tried to cross the river would lose the war and thousands of men would be killed.
Under the cover of night we hauled every kind of boat and barge that would float and one morning bright and early we had our pontoon bridges with tanks and supplies going across before the enemy knew what was happening. We not only crossed the river successfully with half the losses the experts predicted, but we successfully routed the enemy and completely disorganized them leaving valuable equipment and supplies behind. It was a great success. We took thousands of prisoners.
