Resumen:
"This memoir recounts the experiences of a Marine Corps officer. Each chapter describes a specific event, a story of emotion, or a remarkable person. The reader lives the experience alongside the author's memory, gaining a sense of the pulse-pounding contact, surrealism, pathos, humor, and beauty that defined one of the low points of the American experience"--Provided by publisher.
