    A glimpse into late twentieth century America and Army Special Forces.

    Posted September 14, 2009. 4:00 pm EST. Sergeant Major Carden shows the reader what it was like growing up in 1950s-60s Middle America. Life was simple then. Entering young adulthood, he joined the Army at a time when his generation was questioning authority. He was trained in Military Intelligence and was accepted for Special Forces. He served in Viet Nam and describes his time there. He came out of Viet Nam a decorated hero and in the late 1970s and early 1980s he worked on special projects for the DIA, NSA, CIA and State Department. His duties brought him in contact with President Reagan and President George H.W. Bush. Sergeant Major Carden was involved in counter-drug and counter-insurgency. He down played his part and praised his soldiers. His story is a chronology of events beginning with his childhood and spanning a 30 year Army career that ended on July 1st, 1995. After the Army, Sergeant Major Carden retired to a small New England community and performed community service helping low income families and homeless veterans. He came out of retirement and entered the business world a few years ago. The book was hard to put down and showed me the difference one person can make by serving his country and his community. I will be giving out several copies as Christmas gifts this year.
