    I found this book helpful. It showed me what types of jobs ther

    I found this book helpful. It showed me what types of jobs there are in the military and some vary from others. It also shows you what life is like as a soldier in a combat zone. It puts you in the soldiers shoes like you were there with them. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the military or history.
