22gigantes.com - As the saying goes, “I’ve been around the world twice, talked to everyone once. I’ve been beat up, blown up and stabbed, shot at and missed, Shit at and hit.” The good news is that I’m still here to tell the tale, and if I don’t say so myself, it is amusing as hell. Or as my readers say “Politically incorrect & laugh out loud funny.” This book is view of the Iraq war that not many normal civilians get to see. So if you lost your personality in card game, you’re really thin skinned or easily offended. DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!!! This book is a compilation of emails that were written and sent off to friends and family while the author was working in Iraq as a security contractor from 2003 -2006. From the onslaught of positive responses from everyone encouraged him to continue sending the accounts of his daily life & activities in the sand box in the form of emails, letters & Stories. This is how this book came into reality. War time humor , if such a thing even exists .

The fact that this book was captured from emails and letters during the actual conflict eliminates the undue editing that typically occurs with war books written well after the fact. His daily accounting of the life in conflict brings a fresh understanding of a soldier's mentality without the added opinionization of the typical "embedded" reporter who has nothing at stake for himself.Chuck and those like him embody the "man rules" mentality of true warriors. Do your job, do it well, be yourself, and don't complain. It's pretty well stated from the man's mouth. The fact that only the last chapter happens to tell the story of him losing his leg is a great testament to the mentality. I have never seen Chuck with anything but a positive hooyah America attitude. That he lost his leg seems even an afterthought.They give good soldiers medals for this. I'll just have to buy him a drink. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. War stories have meaning. By Studies at Brenda's & Suzy's bar If you have the need to be regaled by a master story teller you have to drop by Key West and search out Chuck"Big Daddy" Meier. Having been around for for gulf one and two; the stories told by Chuck have been by far, the most entertaining. If you ever wonder about the true opinion of a warrior that is stuck in one of the biggest crapholes, and rest assured there are others, you can find it in the stories of one Charles Meier. In the tradtion of "Things they carry" Chuck puts the emotion and the true non-politically correct opinions that are shared by most soliders that fight our wars. There is no sugercoating of the facts or his observations of the people and places he encountered in Iraq. People in our country cannot begin to consider crapping in a hole and rinsing off your backside with a waterhose. I truely hope that Big Daddy expands this interesting group of stories into a larger product. Having had the experiance of his truely skillful story telling I am eager to read an expanded version of the life and times of one Charles Meier. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. THE TRUTH By brian thomas I loved this book , It lets you know that freedom is not free. Someone has to pay a ticket for your freedom. This book tells you what MSNBC and FOX don't want to tell you. if you want to know who protects your children while they sleep it's the men and woman in the camo humping the SAW. If it where up to me this book would be a night school corse.Thank you Chuck for your service and thanks to all of your brother and sisters in uniform. See all 24 customer reviews...
