The Old Jarhead's Journal: Random Thoughts on Life, Liberty, and Leadership Paperback – June 21, 2013
About the Author
Former Staff Sergeant Robert A. Hall served from 1964 to 1968 in the US Marine Corps, including what he calls “an easy tour” in Vietnam. He later served another six years in the Marine Reserves. In 1972, he graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in government and was elected that November to the first of five terms in the Massachusetts state senate, earning an MEd in history at night from Fitchburg State University while a senator. In 1976, he was nominated by both parties. He retired undefeated to become a successful association executive in 1982, a profession he is being forced to retire from in 2013, due to advancing Pulmonary Fibrosis. He has published hundreds of articles, opinion columns, short stories and poems, plus several books, including "The Coming Collapse of the American Republic," "C.Y.A. – Protecting Yourself in the Modern Jungle," "Advice for my Granddaughter," and "Old Jarhead Poems," which received the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation’s Robert A. Gannon writing award for poetry in 2012. Royalties from these books go to charity.
