The author takes the reader on an entertaining journey through military life from the generational perspective of a baby boomer. From dealing with losing his military draft student deferment during the Vietnam War to serving as a bodyguard for the Secretary of Defense, the author provides the reader with a unique, informative and often outrageously hilarious
glimpse of military life in the United States Army intelligence and law enforcement communities. Learn about sanpaku, snafu, the Asoh Defense, and other obscure forms of military jargon and acronyms. Get introduced to an ornery barnyard cat, modern day cattle rustlers, clever investigative techniques and the perils of using foreign language translators to determine case facts. Laugh in wonderment at the murky world of lie detection using a polygraph instrument. The colorful and memorable characters described in each chapter, to include the author, are alternatingly frail and courageous, naïve and crafty, cynical and patriotic, but always captivatingly authentic.
