Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Thank you to our soldiers, past and present. Without you, we would have nothing.

To my father-in-law, SSG Denzil Giddings- his Majesty's Artillery- 1939-1946
To my mother-in-law, Violet Tabb Giddings, Royal Army Nurse Corps
To my Grandfather-in-law- Sgt Major Tabb, Boer War, South Africa

To my Uncle Charlie, SGT, 101st Abn, Normandy- your jump stories damned near got me killed, but it has been a hoot!

To my great Uncle Eddie- I wish before you passed away, I had known you were in France in WW I- I never had the chance to listen to your stories

To my best friend David- who made brigadier before he retired. To his son, Mike, who helped lead the spearhead for the 3rd Armored. To his other son, Mike, who did his time in Bosnia as a medic.

To SSG Roop, my first Drill Sgt, who may have kept me alive

To Cpt (later COL) Thomas Grady- who taught us what a Commander was

To my soldiers, whose lives I was entrusted with- and when I had to say "Follow me"- they did.
