Thank you!

I am behind, just returned to Bangkok. I hate traveling. It was good to see folks in Orlando, though. I met Norm Hooten, CSM Joe Torres, and a host of others. Karl Monger has quite the global network of connected Rangers.

I will check in to the reviews in a few minutes, and link to them on FB. Thank you for buying my books, and thank you for reviewing them!

I appreciate all the kind comments very much.

I will update when Karl posts the links to our interview. Hopefully it will help those who need it.

Congratulations on completing your book! Clearly a labor of love.

I was in El Salvador on the coast (Gulf of Fonseca) when Urgent Fury went down. We were stoked as the news came in bit by bit as to how the campaign was going.

Years later (2003), Steve ********, who received a Silver Star for his actions during Urgent Fury, and I worked together on a contract gig in Baghdad, Iraq. The last I'd heard he'd moved to Thailand but that was now many years ago.

Again, kudos.

I am pivoting to edit Tales of the Rangers now. If you wrote material you may wish to contribute to that work.

TotR will necessarily appear in two volumes, which means that we can be looser about what gets included. More room.

Karl Monger with GallantFew and I did our interview over again and the sound quality is much better.

We talk about my books, the VA, life as an expat, and the history of the Ranger Battalions.

Listen and share!

Thank you for your ears and your time!
