River City, Memoirs of a Combat Chief Information Officer

eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: $8.99
In July 2006, Martin Hunt was a successful software sales professional with a wife, two sons, a happy life in Seattle, and a commitment to the U.S. Army that he was not sure he’d ever be called on to fulfill. A year later he was a resident of Camp Ramadi, a dusty outpost at the epicenter of Operation Iraqi Freedom. A senior officer surrounded by young men charged with the highly dangerous task of clearing improvised explosive devices from supply routes, Hunt soon grew to dread the call “River City” — the code for incoming casualties. Trapped between his “real” life in Seattle, visited through Skype and a furlough that seemed over before it began, and the hell of “River City,” Hunt provides a window into the paradigm-shifting experience of deployment in the War on Terror: a story of faith, love, and life, interrupted.

    I found "River City" by LTC Martin Dale Hunt, to be truly mesmerizing. He is a retired military man who describes his experiences in Ramadi, Iraq so poignantly that I felt I was right there with him. I think every American should read this book. It would make a great gift. I am so proud of LTC Martin Hunt, and of all of our military men and women who sacrifice so much to keep our country safe. May God bless them all.

    Excellent depiction of the emotional roller coaster every Soldier goes through when called upon. As a combat veteran of Task Force Pathfinder, this took me several sitting to get through. I can honestly say, it is very well written and provides great insight into our daily op tempo conducting combat operations in the Al Anbar Province, the "toughest piece of dirt in Iraq".
