Barry Allen Sadler was born in Carlsbad, New Mexico, in the USA, on 1st November the year 1940. He was the second born in their family. His father was called John Sadler while his mother was Bebe Littlefield. He was an American military veteran. Apart from that, he was also a writer, singer, actor and a song-writer.

Sadler school life was not as smooth as you may think as he drop out of high school in his tenth grade in Leadville, located in Colorado. For a period of about a year from the time he dropped out, he was just hitching across the country. This is the main reason why he enlisted at this tender age of 17 in the U.S. Air force. He was able to pave his way through into the American military in the year 1958 in the unit of the U.S Army Special Forces (7th Special Force Group Airborne).

In the year 1963, Sadler met Lavona. After only three weeks of romance, he and Lavona decided that they want to spend their lives together until death. As a result of this decision, he married Lavona the same year. They were blessed with one daughter, Brooke Sadler, and two sons, Thor and Baron Sadler.

After his airborne training was complete, Sadler was one of the people that volunteered for the United States Army Special forces. Here, he was able to pass through the difficult tests that accompanied him. After a thorough and a lengthy training as combat medic at Fort Sam Houston, in Texas, he was among the military men that were sent to South Vietnam. In the month of May, 1965, he severely wounded his knee in the Central Highlands of South-East Pleiku as a result of feces-covered punji stick, while on a combat patrol. He just covered the injured knee using an adhesive bandage and a cotton swab just help him finish the patrol.

By the time he injured his knee, he had started taking antibiotics for dysentery, and therefore no ill effects of the punji stick were observed. However, after sometimes, the infection in his knee became serious and he was flown back to Walter Reed Hospital in the United States. The doctors enlarged the wound to easily drain the wound and administer the penicillin. As he was still admitted in the hospital, Sadler made a promise to himself that if he recover from the infection successfully, he will give away the rights to a song “The Ballad of the Green Berets” which by then, he was helping to write. When he recovered, he kept his promise.

In the military, with the rank of Staff Sergeant of the United States Army, he serving as Green Beret combat medic in the Vietnam War. In the 1960s, Barry was able to gain the national fame as a result of his hit song,” The Ballad of The Green Berets”. The John Way film, The Green Berets, later used the song as the theme song. Though he was a writer, most of his work had a theme based on his military work as he was crediting himself as SSG Barry Sadler. His credits in music were reading SSgt Barry Sadler.

In the year 1967, Sadler paved his way out of the Army with an honorable discharge. He and his wife Lavona decided to move to Tucson. As he was still doing some other jobs, he began to put much of his efforts to “parlay” which was the hit song into his entertainment career.

In the mid of 1980s, Sadler decided to relocate to Guatemala City and sponsored a restaurant called La Europa. During this time he was still continuing to publish the Casca books but majorly as a ghostwriter. On 7th September the year 1988, Sadler was shot in the head by someone pursuing robbery. He was hospitalized and after several months of being in a coma, he was officially released but with a brain damage. After the release in January, 1989, he was reported lost by his family and was later found. Sadler finally left us on 5th November the same year at his mother’s home in Murfreesboro.

The eternal mercenary spent most of his adulthood in the legions serving the Roman Empire, though the information about his family is a scrap. He grew up in Etruria, a hilly country, currently Tuscany, northern Rome. At childhood, he saw the 10th legion marching through his village. Tontine his uncle was enlisted under Julius Ceaser army. His home was burned by the young Casca after his family had died of plague. At Livorno or Messilia, he enlisted into the 7th legion and his first battle was against Suevii when they were attacked at dawn by 15,000 tribesmen and only 300 survived to the forest. He was sent to Jerusalem when he joined the 10th grade and here his main work was to execute prisoners.

In an attempt to relieve Jesus from his pain and suffering at Golgotha, Casca stabbed Jesus with his spear. Jesus condemned him that” Soldier, you are content with what you are, then that shall remain until we meet again”. Afterwards, Casca did not understand what was happening to him until the time he was condemned to work for 30 years in labor mines. As time goes by he discovers that he is immortal.

2. The Brotherhood of the lamb

The story talks about fanatical religious sect and sworn enemy of the Casca. The elder overseeing the sect’s hierarchy, the inner circle is running the brotherhood of the lamb. The circle is made of twelve brothers running the militant religious organizations and they must be chosen. They do the work of preaching force and power over traditional virtues of compassion and piety.

It was found by Izlam who call himself the thirteenth disciple, at the Casca’s spear thrust in Jesus’s death wake. He buys the spear to be used as a symbol and relic for Golgotha events, from some of the Casca’s comrades. The sect worships the spear of Longinus at prayer times with a form of central focus.

Before the revelation came to him that Jesus said to Casca that “soldier, you are content of who you are and so shall we meet again”. Izram went into the wilderness for forty days. Therefore, according to him he thinks that when Jesus comes the second time, he will meet Casca. So the brotherhood make a decision of keeping Casca on sight until that day Jesus will come back.
