Anyone who ever served in the military can tell a similar story. The
circumstances change and the names are different, but when you deal
with young soldiers anything is probable. Hill tells the reader about
many of these young men and women in some very funny situations.
He also details what it is like to be the commander of a unit with
200 or more of these soldiers, in peacetime and in war. In telling the
story of his long and varied career, he offers some real leadership gems
that carry over to industry. As one observer quipped, "every Lieutenant
should read this book before spending a day with troops; he will either
resign his commission or stay in the military until they kick him out".
The author refers to the family members of military members as the
real heroes in the military. You will gain a whole new appreciation of
what it is like to be an Army spouse. Hill and his wife, Carla, moved
16 times during his 24 year career. Once children came along, it meant
new adventures, along with new schools and new friends. The term
Army Brat is worn with pride, but it is a title that is hard earned.
One knows that military families are nomads, but the author explains
how assignments happen and the consequences of decisions on careers
and promotion. He tells the reader about dealing with the ubiquitous
assignment offi cer. The citizen who has never been around the military
will learn a great deal about the inner workings of the career Army Offi
cer and those who support them.
You will laugh out loud at some of these tales and cry when you learn
about the sacrifi ces these soldiers and the families make. You will swell
with pride when you hear how some of these men respond from unspeakable
adversity. Hill is unabashedly proud of all veterans and as the
title states, he is proud of his many years of service . . . He is Proud of
What he was-A soldier.

    The End

    Okay. First off I want to get this straight. I'm a demigod. I fight monsters it's what I've been doing my whole life. Now, a little bit about my family. My mom's name is Alicia (my dad calls her Aly) and my dad is a god. When I was very little, my mom (mortal) took me to Olympus. I saw my father, Poseidon. He thought that it would be safer for me if I went to Camp Half-Blood when I was old enough to understand my "condition". My mom, however, did not. She thought I would be safer with her. Well, my father convinced her eventually that if I stayed with her, she and I would be overrun by monsters. So, when I was 5 my mom took me to Camp Half-Blood with my protecter, Meeka. -Hope you enjoyed! Next part at result 2.
