This is a photo essay of the author's experiences at Fort Dix, with a Forword by Don Moser. "This is the story of a young man's experience as a basic trainee in the United States Army.Which is to say that it is the story of all the millions of young men who have been there themselves. Churck Rapoport took his camera along when he was inducted into the Army at Fort Dix, New Jersey, and for the next 8 weeks he carried it while he marched, drilled, policed the area, scrubbed garbage cans, cleaned his rifle and did several thousand pushups. In doing so he violated the first rule for a basic trainee's survival- he made himself conspicuous. It was worth the trouble." VERY GOOD+ SOFTCOVER, scarce. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
