The 1960s in America transformed everyone who lived through this amazing time in our nation’s history. Civil rights laws were fought for and passed- women began to find a voice and break down barriers. Immigrant workers and Native Americans raised their voices. We became a smarter, more aware nation—for a while.

The Vietnam War became a symbol of those times. The music helped define us, and the illegal use of banned substances gave some of us the temporary courage to face the insanity head-on.The ranch is a mostly accurate first-person account of one young man’s strange journey from gung ho high school student to landing himself in the middle of the “ world’s most dangerous navy.” Our hero slowly evolves into a war resister who gets into the exact amount of trouble to get assigned to a horse ranch in the U.S. Navy. There are a few rants that I included for mostly therapeutic reasons and several well-chosen fits of profanity that help to paint the military experience as it was and, I believe, still is to this day.

I consider this book funny and thoughtful, but then I’m severely prejudiced. I wrote this back cover account myself because George Carlin and Joseph Heller had busy schedules in the afterlife, and I don’t know Sara Silverman—yet.The Ranch is my first attempt at being considered a writer. I have plans to write a second book, which will document my experience as a telephone man in Northeast New Jersey. There will be plenty of danger, sex, drugs, and rock and roll with a hint of The Sopranos, so don’t spoil my enthusiasm and buy this book.

Thanks, America.
