The following chapters are actually blog entries from a web site known as The Snooper Report. The writer, for the most part, is a Grunt seeing that he served in and out of the military for almost 30... More > years. There are times that he uses what we call “grunt speak” and the verbiage is known to carry verbiage that very few have ever heard from your basic person. I have taken a few of these blog entries and have “cleaned up” the verbose verbiage to some degree seeing that the writer for most of the 20,000 entries are from the owner of the web site.
