It is 1970, and the United States is still deeply bogged down in the quagmire known as Vietnam.

Greg Taylor, a rural bred Pennsylvanian, finds himself becoming yet another cog in the massive military machine known as the US Army.

My novel follows him from the dehumanizing nine weeks of basic training, through his six month stint as a Military Policeman at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, and then to his ten plus month tour of duty in Vietnam and ends when he first visits the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., in 1985.

He has several hair-raising adventures at APG, before he receives his orders for Vietnam, and once he is there, in a relatively secure area, finds that the war can claim victims anywhere in the country, even in so called safe areas.

After one near-death experience, he meets a young army nurse, one that he had a crush on several years before, and though fraternization between officers and enlisted personnel is strictly taboo, they find a way to continue their love affair and look forward to the day they will be back in the states as man and wife.

This novel gives the reader an overview of the Military Police mission, and also shows the frustrations shared by the men and women who served there.
