    A True Soldier's Story by a True Soldier

    This is the type of book that is all too rare. Rather than the memoirs of self serving generals at the Star Fleet level, burned out Army Colonels in mid-life crisis or convicted Navy Captains, this is the autobiography of a Special Forces Sergeant and his experiences in four major conflicts. Don't expect a lot of polish but Do expect a lot of observations from someone who started at ground level and ended his career as mid-level staff during a period when the men who wear the Green Beret went through a transition from the end of the Cold War to the Global War on terrorism. It's also a personal story of a professional soldier who loved serving his country at odds with members of his family. Nason has the guts to present both sides here. You won't be disappointed in this book.
