War stories are always about the fighters, the men and women on the frontline, the people putting their lives on the line for their country. But that is only half of the story. Without the support troops, an army would not last long at all.

This book is all about the actual and true adventures of the members of an Army finance unit. No blood and guts, no firefights, no heroic acts of bravery, just the insane happenings of one guy thrust into a unit he has no training for and how he and the rest of the reserve finance unit coped with the facts of being dropped into the middle of a war.

The book is easy to read. The stories are presented as individual happenings. Some are funny, some are informative, some are just bizarre; but in war, bizarre is many times the order of the day.

How does someone trained in military intelligence cope with existing in a finance unit? There is no compatibility of training or expertise. A finance unit does not have a lot of use for someone trained in image interpretation or interrogation. Military intelligence does not teach their people how to fill out DD213s, or is it 214s?

Laugh, learn, and look into the lives of some unique people that were put into a strange and surreal situation and how well they coped with their situation and invented solutions to their problems.
