Reviewed/written by JUNE BURGESS
Codis Hampton has written an excellent account of his experience as a very young man in the U.S. Army. Codis takes the reader on a journey into another country and two differing cultures- a small village in Korea and life as a new recruit in the U.S. Army. The reader shares his journey from the perspective of a young seventeen year old from the Midwest who joins the ranks of military men willing and eager to serve and protect their country. There are many intricate relationships between officers, grunts and indigenous villagers. Once you start reading this book it is very difficult to put it down. I found myself reading into the wee morning hours and had to literally force myself to close the covers and turn the light out! If you are curious as to how others live in a different part of the world, how the military runs and how a young man transitions from a child into a responsible adult with the assistance and support from a tight knit circle of friends and higher ranked officers then this is a must read. Interesting, spell-binding, difficult to put down!
