Hold On to A Godly Frame of Reference; Don't let America Become Another Jonestown
ABOUT GEORGE COKER
As detailed in Mr. Litke's account The Downfall of Jim Jones (1980), David Conn and his Seminole friend George Coker tried to caution the American Indian Movement (AIM) against getting too involved with People's Temple cult leader Jim Jones.
Unfortunately as messengers Conn and Coker were mistrusted, their caution was taken as a threat, federal involvement was mischaracterized, and the incident was reported to Jones, who interpreted events to mean the IRS was after him and it was time to get out of the country.
George had ALS in recent years and has gone on to be with the Lord. He was a believer, a wonderful man, and was much loved. The following account by George's crewmate during World War II is an amazing story of survival.
