Second best book I have ever read. As someone who just applied for OCS, it was great insight to what I am getting myself into. It doesn't cake it like a recruiter will. Lt.

Read this book if you are interested in seeing more about the Military today and how its not what you think.

Similar to other "coming of age" military autobiographies I have read, but more thoughtful. Mr Fick was also unafraid to be constructively critical of the Corps. This was a good read. Read full review
