Part I: First Days

Chapter One


MOST PEOPLE DON'T know any more about the Army than what they read in Beetle Bailey© comics. I didn't before I joined it. My father never served. My brother was in the National Guard during the period between Korea and Vietnam, but he was six years older and a mystery to me. I had uncles and cousins who served in World War I and II, but very little contact with them. Thus, I marched off to war with no idea of the trials awaiting me.
