From the Publisher
In reflection I think back through the years, there are many things which have happened to me that may well be of passing interest to readers. Places, events all amount up to and many pages in books.In thirty years in the military I have touched the ground in most nations in the western world. My only entry behind the iron curtain was a quick stop in Rumania. I pulled a year in Vietnam. In that year, I was responsible for the release of military information to the 400 odd members of the press corps there. A very interesting experience.Upon retirement from the Air Force, I was fifty something and too young to quit.I retired at Scott Air Force Base in southern Illinois. Having a degree in law from Vanderbilt University, I commenced the practice of law. I am sorry to relate that I never succeeded in plumbing the depths of human perfidy in twenty-seven years in this endeavor.After I finally retired-retired, I started placing some of my experiences on paper. I have just completed my third book. I feel there may be a book or two left within me.One thing is for sure: the trip has been a gas.
