Slip & Trip: My Memoirs of 8th S&T Battalion
Have you ever wondered what the U.S. Army really was like at the end of the Vietnam War?  In his own words, as it happened,&ampnbspthe author tells his story of life in the U.S. Army, from the time he entered military service until two&ampnbspvindictive, cruel, and abusive superiors totally ruined his career.  He describes how difficult it was dealing with angry soldiers returning from Vietnam, racial bigotry, and drug abuse by others.  He also relates many funny stories about some of&ampnbsphis friends and bosses.  He relates feelings after reenlisting for another&ampnbspperiod of service over in Germany.  He then relates&ampnbspthe difficulties in dealing with an obstinate, narrow-minded Commanding Officer whose vindictiveness&ampnbspover a pay action that he was not even authorized to receive subjected the author to months of being denied his rights under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.  The author spells out how that Commanding Officer repeatedly harrassed him, refused him due process, using him as his own "whipping post" until the author broke down.  He also relates how another evil, demented supervisor his First Sergeant subjected him to the same mental abuse until he finally had a nervous breakdown. &ampnbspThe author tells&ampnbspALL, relating what was said from&ampnbspboth sides.  He shows how the military justice&ampnbspsystem&ampnbspsystem was, in HIS case, nothing more than a "good buddy network" where high rank allows those holding that high rank to abuse the system and abuse those they supervise.
