Doug DePew's sense of humor shines in this memoir. He had me laughing at many of the antics. I enjoyed reading DePew's story. It is well-written and the style is conversational. I could imagine sitting with him and listening to him reminisce. DePew wrote this book in honor of his fellow soldiers. Let them not be forgotten. -Reader's Favorite
DePew and his buddies were hard drinking, brawling, fraulein-chasing, pranksters who, when duty called, seriously guarded the warheads and missiles from Soviet and peacenick attacks. Men who bonded and always had each others back. I appreciated DePews' story and will keep the book on my shelf. ~Lee Boyland, Military Writer's Society of America
DePew is an engaging writer. His narrative in "SAT & BAF!: Memories of a Tower Rat" is fast-moving, filled with quick wit, genuinely honest and candid. ~~ Richard R. Blake for Reader Views
