    Comments from readers: “There are many good laughs, but for me after having served in war and facing another deployment, it is so great to read how down to earth and real your stories are. It’s even better to hear how much the Army hasn’t really changed. Sure we have all this technology, but bottom line is we still are a true melting pot of different personalities with diverse upbringings…and still nothing goes totally as planned…but that is what makes the Army so interesting and great! I am currently in company command and … use your stories as a source of inspiration when I stand up in front of the company or am talking with a group of Soldiers out on the firing range, during PT, while issuing a reprimand, or just shooting the bull. It’s great to point out all the similarities to what we’re going through to the events you went through as well.” --- Captain Stan L. Goligoski, USA “A very candid, graphic, realistic account. You told it from the heart…told it like was. Your book needs... More > to be a ‘must read’ for our cadets at West Point as well as for young officers and NCO’s at our branch schools. You find ways to poignantly, even humorously, depict the rigors and challenges of men in combat and how to learn immediately from mistakes. You wonderfully show how leaders ‘lead from the front!’ Well done!” -- Lieutenant Colonel Gary Halstead, USA (Ret.) “Most thought provoking, interesting with a profound insight into an Army career, especially Vietnam experiences. Thank you and congratulations on an outstanding, incisive, and well written book on your life and service to our country.” --- Master Sergeant Gordon Barker, USAF (Ret.) “I [had} the privilege of reading [about] your tour of duty in Vietnam. It is something that every young American should read. The Vietnam War was never properly treated by the media or the US Government and thus the public has a negative view of the Vietnam War. [I consider] Phil Caputo’s “A Rumor of War” … one of the best treatments of the War I have read and yours would be competitive with that.” ---WWII Veteran Charlie Pyne< Less
