Anni Baker has created a fascinating exploration of life in the armed forces, as it has been experienced by millions of men, women, and children over the past six decades. Her book examines the factors that shape military service and military culture, from grueling training exercises to sexual relations with local women, from overseas duty to the peculiar life of the military "brat." The book begins with an examination of the enlistment process, follows the military lifecycle through career decisions, promotions, raising families, and retirement, explores the impact of war on military society, and ends with a discussion of the place of the armed forces in the United States. Using a lively and readable style, the author blends clear explanations of elements of military life, information on the development of military society, and the voices of those who serve into an insightful account of this fascinating subculture.

The book addresses the concerted actions that the U.S. government and responsible citizens must take to resolve the current major recurring social, economic, political, and environmental problems and issues to save the nation from self-induced destruction. These problems and issues also make the nation vulnerable to hostile external threats, such as international terrorism and attacks against U.S. interests by adversarial nations. Former President Abraham Lincoln said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” The current social, economic, and political situation and the negative attitudes manifested by many Americans could cause us to falter and suffer self-induced destruction. The publication highlights how the execution of the democratic process in accordance with the provisions of the U.S. Constitution; restoration the tradition family unit and national core values; embracing inherent duties and responsibilities; eradication of social, economic, and political injustices; and learning to live in harmony with mankind and nature can help eradicate major problems plaguing the United States today and ensure that this government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.
