We'll All Die As Marines Radio Interview

I have finally published on YouTube the radio interview conducted Mr. Jay Douglas Barker of Toginet for iUniverse. It is way to long, but cutting it down to a reasonable length was way beyond the reach of this electronically-handicapped Marine Grunt. So, I added some photos throughout to perhaps relieve some of your boredom (I hope it works:-). Readers of the book will recognize the scenes in the photos even though many of them were not in the book due to space limitations.

In a parking lot at Fort Hood, Texas, I stood with my family as we gathered to say farewell to my youngest son, a first lieutenant in the United States Army, as he prepared to deploy to an undisclosed location in the Middle East. Even though we were smiling with pride, our hearts were already breaking. I held it together for the send off, but I fell apart after we got back to the hotel.
