Peace is quiet when it rules. But the USA of the 1960s was anything but peaceful. The Berlin Wall, Bay of Pigs, integration of the races, the hatred involved in change, all dotted the landscape with a heavy brush. Here is private/pfc/private/pfc/private Kelly's story of the times.

    Abuse is a word thrown about somewhat loosely, but the army, for all its glorification and rah, rah spirit, is evidently an abusive environment. M. O. S. Spitvalve takes us from the ridiculousness of basic training through the petty little games the more senior cadre play, through real life situations and dangers and, in some cases, out the other side, unceremoniously dumped back on the sidewalks of civilian life. Although I found the book immensely entertaining, the anti-climatic ending left me feeling cheated. Not as a reader, but as a citizen of the country and a human being. Then again, listening to all the bruhaha over returning vets from Iraq and Afghanistan, it appears not to have changed a whit. If the author is to be believed, and I see no reason not to do so.
