Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692384707, Paperback)

As a chewed-up Army National Guard unit heads to a forgotten war in Afghanistan, three men find themselves thrust into the heart of absurdity: the post-modern American war machine. The inexperienced Private Rench, the jaded veteran Staff Sergeant Halderman, and the idealistic Lieutenant Gracie join a platoon of misfit citizen-soldiers and experience a series of alienating and bizarre events. Rench is force-fed cookies by his drill sergeants. Halderman’s “training” is to pick up garbage in the California desert for four days straight. Gracie contends with a battalion commander obsessed with latrine graffiti. Once they reach Afghanistan, things really get weird. Flight of the Blue Falcon is the story of three men who volunteer to serve their country. It’s about what it means to be a soldier, to fight, to know true camaraderie—and to return home. This is a war story. This is our story. Only the most unbelievable parts are true.
