This review is from: Recall! Return of the IRR (Kindle Edition)I had the pleasure of reading Author DOUG DePEW'S "SAT & BAF: Memories of a Tower Rat", and could not wait to read his new novel; "RECALL: Return of the IRR". Anyone who has served in the United States Army, Air Force, Marine Corps Navy and Coast Guard will definitely enjoy both books. A walk down memory lane to jog your memories, rejuvenate your feelings of brotherhood for those with whom you served, and experienced all the "B_ _ _ S _ _ _", the "HURRY UP . . . and WAIT" of military life. One thing that came across loud and clear in Mr. DePew's "RECALL: Return of the IRR" is his pride in the United States of America, and his trust and love for the members of his unit(s). I must admit I was worried (probably as much as he was) that I would read of horrible experiences of war in Iraq. I was touched by the "Welcome Home" and parades given to those who answered the call to arms. Each of you deserved it. We did not have that coming home from the Viet Nam war.
Mr. DePew has written a novel that shines through with pride and respect. It gives his readers a very important lesson, that the young men and women who wear the uniforms of our Armed Forces can sleep well knowing our Constitution, our Bill of Rights and the freedoms we all take for granted are PROTECTED 24 hours a day, seven days a week, holidays included by the best, brightest equipped and trained military forces on this earth.
I salute you, Sir and thank you for your Service in both the United States Army and the United States Navy Reserves.
I am glad to know your life has turned out so well, your family can be very proud. You are a true PATRIOT.
One of my Sergeants, ART PARNELL is (was) from "The Ozarks in Missouri", as he would proudly say. I loved my travels through the 'Show Me' State, it is indeed, as Doug DePew says, 'Beautiful'!
