I thought I would like thias book more. true story of a boy (18 yrs old) who enlisted in the marine corps after highschool rather than enroll in college. Unusual choice since he went to Phillips Andover (same year as "W") I liked the whole bootcamp experience but his descriptions of being in-country were harder to follow. Also, having read Chickenhawk prior to this, I expected more. What was interesting was comparing this author's life with Chickenhawk author's life after Vietnam.
