"Military biographies and books written by senior Flag and General officers are almost routine, but there are very few books written from the perspective of the enlisted soldier. With his biography, 'Soldier for Life' SMA Jack Tilley (ret) provides that and more. His insight into the work and challenges of the senior enlisted advisor are insightful and unique. I highly recommend 'Soldier for Life' to any enlisted Soldier, Marine, Sailor, Airman or Coast Guardsman who aspire to become a senior enlisted leader of any service." --Charles "Skip" Bowen Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard (ret) "This book lays out what it's like to be a Soldier in combat, in Garrison and in the community and it's presented so that a civilian who has not served can understand it. SMA Tilley talked a lot about his roles and responsibilities as a Noncommissioned Officer at every level. He reminded me of what I need to focus on right now as a Command Sergeant Major and I appreciate it." --CSM Gabriel S. Arnold, US Army Cadet Command and Fort Knox "For those Soldiers, Sailors , Airmen and Marines looking for some guidance on how a successful military career as a Noncommissioned Officer really works, you'll find it here too." --TW Shortt, Radcliff/Fort Knox Kentucky

For those Soldiers, Sailors , Airmen and Marines looking for some guidance on how a successful military career as a NonCommissioned Officer really works, you’ll find it here too.
For me, the most sound advice from this book was SMA Tilley’s advice to focus 100% on the job/role you are currently in and let this prepare you for roles of greater responsibility. That works not only in military service, but in virtually everything.
