The spell binding memoirs of Albert Slugocki. Displaced from his native Poland because of his hatred of the communist government.
He served his adopted country faithfully with honor and distinction for 21 years in peace and war as a combat arms soldier obtaining the rank of Sargeant Major - an acheivement of its own. Albert fought in Korea and Vietnam and participated in other clandestine missions in Southeast Asia and Europe. Wounded several times, he continued to serve until his retirement.
Albert met his wife Margaret, a sister of a fellow Special Forces soldier and a good friend while both were recovering from combat wounds at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C.
After being medically discharged from the U.S. Marshal's Service, he began to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.). Albert seeks refuge in the Amazonian jungles of South America - Peru.
He gave of himself both physically and mentally by devoting his life's time and efforts helping the native Indians who live near the banks of the mighty Amazon River and in the remote jungle villages with medical aid. Their latest ambition is the building and staffing of a clinic-hospital that will provide the only medical services in these remote areas. Project Amazonas continues to actively recruit Medical Doctors and Dentists and other medical professionals to volunteer their services with the organization in Peru
Albert continues to support Project Amazonas and a percentage of the procedes from the sale of his book will be dedicated to the Project.
