I am a retired Paramedic and have worked with Green
Berets, 18 D's in particular.
No, I will not tell you, where, when, and how.
Love Me When I'm Gone, gives the reader a nice sneak
peek into Special Forces Green Berets, Rangers), their training
schools, mission (s), traditions, and personal lives, all within
reason of security, of course.
It tends to be a wee bit wordy at times, and does move slowly
in certain places.
Kinda like some of the 18 d's, I have known.
All in all, it is an enjoyable read.
A very readable and engaging first-hand account of triumph and tragedy, military humor, camraderie (something that's indescribable to someone who'snever served in the military or any other high-risk profession), international combat action & adventure, triumph, tragic loss, and true love lost and then re-gained for good. SSG Lewis also has some insightful observations on the places he's been, such as the state of poverty and corruption in Africa, and the short-sightedness and political stupidity of the senior officers running the show in Afghanistan (for example,the Group Commander who arbitrarily order Robert's team to cut their long hairs & beards,when they'd already been authorized "modified grooming standards" in order to blend in better with the local populace and gain credibility with said populace).
Best of all, part of the proceeds from the sale of the book go toward a worthy cause, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
read his story.
Well, I was very impressed. It was told in such a way that I not only wanted to keep reading to find out what happened next but I also wanted to meet all these people.
It was a great depiction of a SF soldier and the extensive training they go through to become the warriors they are. And I love the romantic aspect that was included. It was so real and yet remained in the background so it never seemed cheesy or out of place.
I highly recommend it. And thank you yo all the soldiers in the armed forces.
Mr. Lewis tells an amazing & honest story with both his successes & shortcomings. As a civilian who has never served it made me wonder how I would react if I was in his situation.
In a time when we seem to put some much emphasis & focus on our sports figures, politicians, celebrities, etc. this book gives a look into the lives of the real heroes we should be looking up to & celebrating.
I especially appreciate the life-saving choice he made for himself toward the end (I don't want to give it away). j
AND - VERY IMPORTANT - Anybody who is considering voting for Hillary in 2016 needs to read this book (actually, just the last few chapters).
