  Thanks for the "Good Read" , 03/07/2004
Reviewer: John H. Watson
Stahl, you have a very acute sense of writing a book about a subject that many of us wonder about: that is, serving in the military "abroad". I think your interests in travel, while stationed in West Germany, help to weave interest into your story about your job and details of military life. It was a very enjoyable read, as you introduce the reader to the different character's that you worked with, and under, and your very descriptive analysis of each person that enters your life while serving. I found it interesting how people of other countries treated you when you were in "Uniform" and dressed as a civilian. I'm sure it is probably that way today (2004) as history is changing the perception of Americans, and I'm sure Military Americans abroad. I can' wait to discuss with my nephew, now stationed in Germany with the Marines, what life was like, as he has done as much traveling with his wife while they have been "overseas". Your book gives my a lot of ideas as to questions I can pursue with them, upon their return. I should add: THANKS FOR SERVING FOR THE UNITED STATES. I can't wait to read you next book. Keep them coming, I have become a fan of your writing and more importantly a fan of your "class act". John H. Watson
