Grunt Traitor by Weston Ochse
"I thought GRUNT Life was amazing. This one topped that. I hope there is another book in the series, as I feel there are some things that could be addressed, but I am happy should there not be. Now I have to check out his other works! :D"

"Liked this book a LOT.
I thought the first was awesome, but this moves even further into that OMG territory.

“Explosions happened. People died. And I slept.”
Weston Ochse, FUBAR: A Collection of War Stories

“The fact is that Superman should be fat. He should be a lard-assed superhero with flabby arms, a beer gut, and soft muscles.
...when Superman bench-presses a Cadillac, he doesn't even break a sweat. It's like picking up a bag of feathers. Would Batman be buff if he bench-pressed feathers? Because that's essentially what Superman does every day.”
Weston Ochse, SEAL Team 666

“I dunno what the hell's in there, but it's weird and pissed off, whatever it is." -The Thing, 1982, Directed by John Carpenter”
Weston Ochse, Blaze of Glory
