It Happened on the Way to War: A Marine's Path to Peace Eleven years ago Charlotte resident and college student, Rye Barcott, spent part of a summer living in a 10 x 10 foot shack in a slum of Nairobi, Kenya. Soon after, he was headed to the marines to serve his country as a fighter. Both experiences shaped Rye Barcott and he eventually put down his rifle to help the people he grew to care for in Kenya. Mr. Barcott has written a book of his experiences called It Happened on the Way to War: A Marine's Path to Peace and he shares his incredible story, and his efforts to save a slum.
