Real patriotism.Would they enlist today? Their thoughts on todays leaders and wars.

United States Army Serial Number 37531447 is a wartime autobiography giving vivid accounts of emotions, unrevised history and erratum on both the training fields and during the riggers of battle. The author relates happenings of a World War II 'noncom' soldier known by his army serial number of 37531447. It is an unpretentious allegory of men at arms. The book is authored with a wonderful humorous and human perspective. It comes from a different viewpoint...one chronicling the experience of military life for a naive young man coming from the vast pastoral tall grass prairie of the Flint Hills of Kansas. This young lad from Chase County, the county's first Eagle Scout, skillfully narrates the slow subtle transition of values in his life as a former civilian...to that of a well-trained combat soldier, doing what warriors have been conditioned to endure and do.
