I’m hooked

One of my Christmas gifts from my brother was a book, One Bullet Away: The Making of a Marine Officer. I started reading it as bathroom material a couple of nights ago. Now I am a couple of chapters in and this will be the only blogging I do tonight as I am going to read for awhile before I crash. I don’t know if he has written anything else yet, but Nathaniel Fick is a smooth read. I am thoroughly enjoying the book and may post on it more after I finish.
