This book is a fascinating journey from the high jinks of life in a Florida music studio college to reunion with the reality and rigors of life on Army Time. Often funny, sometimes profane, but thoroughly captivating. I enjoyed the ride. ~~By Robert Peter Thompson, author of "Everything Happened in Vietnam"DePew relates his own story and experience as one of the thousands called up to serve on active duty. Depew relates his experience in a lighthearted way; this is a great book for those who have no close family in the military while proving of interest to those that have served. ~~Jim Greenwald, Military Writer's Society of America (2012)
