    The Wit and Wisdom of our Troops

    Having spent 10 years in the military in one fashion or another (enlisted soldier, West Point Cadet, Artillery Officer), I appreciate what is contained in the book. One of the greatest honors I have ever received was the privilege of leading soldiers. They are hard working, committed, inventive, and humorous. The range of what they say in both formal settings and in "off the cuff" remarks goes from profound to hilarious. Some of the quotes in the book are from people I served with and at least one from a West Point Classmate, which makes it more meaningful for me. For those that served in the military, this book will have a more reflective impact; for those that did not, it will provide some insight into the men and women that defend us on a daily basis. This is a good book to read and to own.

    The Wit and Wisdom of Our Troops Book

    I was delighted to find this book in my local Hallmark. I was looking for a 96th birthday gift for a US Army Veteran who has written and lectured about his World War II experiences. I wanted something related to military service that would be of a lighter theme and this fit the bill. His face lit up when he opened the wrapping paper and found the book. He absolutely loved it. This book would be appropriate for anyone serving in the military currently or in the past. The patriotic quotes and articles are easy to read and the book is small enough to ship easily or take on travel. The reasonable price also makes it affordable. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a special gift for a military member or anyone interested in military history.

    Great gift

    Bought it for a young man going into the service. I love this book. I’m hoping he will enjoy it just as much.

    Laugh Troop

    As a veteran myself I really enjoyed the wit and wisdom of this little book. It brought back fond memories and is a source of delight. It's also good to see how our heroes reacted in similar circumstances. In fact, I am considering getting another book to send to my grandson in Iraq. Everyone enjoys a laugh at some of the crazy things one sees while serving our country. A wonderful sense of comfort!

    My veteran loves it

    My veteran husband really enjoyed this little book. He read it through in one sitting. But keeps it out to read passages almost every day.
