The Guidon Bearer: A Basic Training Story based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
If there’s one thing remembered by all veterans, regardless of which branch they served, it’s basic training. In “The Guidon Bearer,” Robert Lovelle Rooks captures the hell of that experience, as drill instructors tear down recruits, as well as the heaven of it, mainly that sense of teamwork, self-pride and camaraderie that blossoms as trainees learn what it means to be an airman. The book nicely stays focused as it follows the story of one specific recruit, who becomes his training unit’s guidon bearer. Whether you be a veteran, the family of a servicemember, or are a teen thinking of joining, you’ll enjoy and grow from this book.
