Desert Storm: Dreadnought by Joseph George

Joseph was an M-1 Tanker in the legendary 1st Infantry Division (Big Red One) in the Gulf War. Their mission was to lead the attack on the Iraqi mine field while being attacked with chemical, and biological weapons. It was a suicide mission, and they were awarded the Valorous Unit Award for extraordinary heroism in war. This book is about the mission, and the impact that it had on his life. “For all of the chest-pounding politicians and overheated pundits who are quick to recommend war, Desert Storm: Dreadnought should be required reading.”-BlueInk Review

About the Author

I was born in Ithaca, New York, and I was raised in New Bern, North Carolina. Football, baseball, and soccer were my favorite sports growing up. I love music, and I played the saxophone in my high school band.
I graduated from high school in 1989, and joined the U.S. Army as an M-1 Tanker 2 months later. Ft. Knox, Kentucky is where I completed basic training. I fought in Desert Storm as an M-1 Tanker in the 1st Infantry Division, also known as the Big Red One.
I earned a Bachelor of Social Work Degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in 2005. The chair of the Department of Sociology and Social Work, Dr. Sarah V. Kirk inspired me to write a book about the war. I wrote the book in the summer of 2003. I chose social work because I wanted to help other veterans. I love studying the bible, reading, writing, landscaping, and exercising.
