The real-life story of a country boy whose transition from college into military life brought increasing involvement with advanced weaponry of the Cold War. This odyssey into the shadows of secrecy begins with the assassination of a President, then tells of becoming a Viet Nam era draftee who wore the uniform of a sailor rather than a soldier, then unfolds along paths that wind their way into cryptic, clandestine service as a Top Secret operative for a little known agency of the US Government. This story goes deep into the obscure world of nuclear warheads and secret facilities told as adventures beyond his wildest imagination.
