    1. Special Men is a terrific book Dennis Foley takes us through his entire twenty year Army career in this book, but the bulk of it is spent in the first ten years of his career I really enjoyed this memoir It s well written in a conversational, humble voice Foley comes across as likeable The years prior to Vietnam were quite interesting Foley tells us about his time as an enlisted man in Cold War Germany He also gives quite detailed descriptions of OCS and Airborne School in the pre Vietnam era On [...]

    4. Awesome Details life in the American Army before, during, and after Vietnam The author worked in the elite Tiger Force.
