Born in 1963, joined the Army direct from school and still serving 29 years later! Married 25 years to Cheryl, we have three grown up children who have done the decent thing and left home! Never thought I would ever write a book, but here it is! Decided to add 'volume 1' because I so enjoyed researching and writing the guide that I'm sure I will add to it. In the unlikely event that anyone decides to buy this guidebook, I will donate the very modest profit to the Army Benevolent Fund.
