This book is dedicated to the gallant members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps with whom I served in three wars. They represent the thin line that defends this country, a line many times drawn in blood.
There is no way this book would have been completed without the love and encouragement of my wife, Frances. While many of my friends and associates have pressed me to write of my experiences, Frances did the “heavy lifting,” taking my handwritten manuscripts, cleaning them up, and putting them on a computer disc. There would be no book without her.
There are many others who have assisted in important ways. Alan Pope did yeoman's work in editing, Kyle Ray did the art and photographic work, Lenore Miranda supplied the title, and numerous friends read and commented on the drafts.
