Soldier Boy: At Play in the ASA Timothy James Bazzett In 1962 when Tim Bazzett graduated from high school he d had enough of academia and classroom drudgery, so he joined the army and received an education he d never imagined Perhaps one of the most unlikely and inept citizen soldiers since Gomer Pyle, Tim somehow survives the terrors and tribulations of basic training at Fort Lost in the Woods, Misery, and after furtherIn 1962 when Tim Bazzett graduated from high school he d had enough of academia and classroom drudgery, so he joined the army and received an education he d never imagined Perhaps one of the most unlikely and inept citizen soldiers since Gomer Pyle, Tim somehow survives the terrors and tribulations of basic training at Fort Lost in the Woods, Misery, and after further training in the mysteries of Morse code in Massachusetts and Maryland, the small town innocent is launched overseas and into the larger world In northern Turkey he finds himself a link in the outermost defenses of America during a Cold War he only imperfectly understands There he sees poverty and hatred in the faces of children and is forced to confront his own faults and inner demons Later on in Germany, no longer quite so innocent, he chases girls and dreams of being a rock star But at the heart of Bazzett s narrative are the characters the friends he makes along the way For this is ultimately a book about friendship and about growing up.In his first volume of memoirs, Bazzett made his Michigan hometown in the fifties come alive for all his readers In Soldier Boy, his military experiences are made just as real Get ready to laugh, and maybe cry a little too, as the irrepressible Reed City Boy rides again.
