Product description...

Invaluable Insight Into Your Military Experience

This book is personal. And it’s about you. Nobody understands what it feels like to be a soldier except another soldier. It’s about your family back home. It’s about trying to gain respect. It’s about achieving something important after feeling like a failure. It’s about living far from home and feeling lonely. It’s about discovering women. It’s about good and bad bosses. It’s about successes and failures, excitement and frustration. Sound like you yet? And the book will bring back memories. I’ll share my story while you reflect upon your own. In fact, it will draw you back to your childhood, and spur visions of your future. No soldier’s story is dull if you have a sense of humor. And you’ll laugh at my story as well as your own as we quickly turn the pages together. It’s an easy read, too. Stories of my life in the military are a quick, two-page read for the most part. I follow up with a few questions directed to you about your own story. That’s why sometimes a bunch of guys might get together over lunch and read some of these together. It gets you laughing and sharing about your own journey down the road.
