The second volume of Wong's adventures at West Point and the U.S. Army Special Forces is almost as fascinating as the first and fills in some of the gaps in the first volume. We learn more about why he went to West Point in the first place, more about West Point's seemingly juvenile rituals, what it is like to eat a dead dog you find floating in a river, the distractions of having an Iraqi translator with big breasts, what it feels like to have a pair of boots that actually fits, the wonders of Lasik surgery, and a host of unforgettable things about Army life. What shines through is Wong's willingness (with names changed and some deliberate obfuscation for security reasons) to be so brutally honest about everything, including his own feelings and shortcomings. After reading these two volumes, I have a much better idea of what it means to be a soldier--especially a Special Forces soldier. I can't wait for Volume III. ( )
