Website Dedication by Author Rick Peterson

Alf R. Larson was a Christian man and believed and lived by those values. Throughout his life, especially in World War II during the brutal Battle of Bataan and horrific experiences as a prisoner of war of the Imperial Japanese Army, he never wavered from his trust and faith in Jesus Christ, his Savior and Lord. This website is dedicated to the glory of God who Alf served so faithfully and to the bountiful blessings he richly bestowed on him, even in captivity, and on all His people who trust, serve, and believe in Him.

Yes, all glory to Him, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, glory, majesty, power, and authority belong to Him in the beginning, now, and forever more, Amen.
