Once An Eagle

Perhaps the best book about military service I ever read.
It's available at
Amazon.com in Hard and Paperpack.
Now and then I get a glimpse of one of our Presidential candidate's close advisors on TV and am reminded of the A**hole West Point Grad from the book- Courtney Massengale.
I assume my readership is smart enough to sort out who I'm talking about.
You are a genuine ass, General. Thank you.

Don't get so worked up about Wesly the weasel. He's Flaming and everyone knows it. Serves as a great bad example.

As a Canuck, I'm not entirely sure which Presidential candidate assistant you are referencing. But.....I agree with you wholeheartedly on the book - read it in my early teens and have gone back several times since: an extremely well-written novel. Were I not a natural-born cynic, I might even call it "inspirational".
