This book is full of Army humor, and about 1-41 Field Artillery Battalion of Ft. Stewart GA, 3rd Infantry Division. It is a tale more of "Red Platoon" or "Red Steel." Still known as "Glorious Guns," we came to Ramadi Iraq during the Troop Surge of 2007. Some of us were young without plenty of experience in combat. Others like me were older and not experienced. The center of the story is me, "The Docfather." The irony of this combat experience is the akin to the movie "The Godfather."
Like the Francis Ford Coppola's movie, it involves a Family "Red Platoon." The enemies of course were Al-Queda, and Iranians killing us in the middle of the night. Yet as a medic, my job was not to kill, but to heal. I have published a book like this via Fictionwise books under fiction. Truth be told, this book is anything but fiction. The blood you smell here is real. The M-4s firing bullets you hear were real. The five year old Iraqi boy who I could not save is real. For to me, God took him for a reason. Out of 38 Iraqis I tread, I lost two. One came to me with a .50 caliber round hole in his chest.
By purchasing this book, you are helping not only me, but yourselves. Maybe if we change the way we wage war, or the way we spend money, we might save lives and money.
