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.

"Christeson, cut that stop sign down and put it in the back of the truck". He looked at me in disbelief. An Officer had never before ordered him to commit vandalism. Read full review
