Comments: I have heard the legend of Billy Waugh for many years, but did not know the severity of his wounds, which makes his story that much more amazing.Once you start reading, you can't stop.Gives great insight into SOG, the Jackal and radical Islam today.I would recommend it to everyone for a better understanding of today's events. A fantastic book.

Comments: Well, good for ya, SGM. I have guys on the web (not SF) shaking their heads and asking "Can this be for real?" Heh heh .. I have to tell them, probably .. except for the lies of course :-) Guess I'll have to find a copy (maybe they have one at the SF Association library? hint hint?) and read it.

Comments: I learned of Billy from one of his high school classmates, Jean Peel, who still keeps in touch with him. Bought the book and really enjoyed it. He was likely at Khe Sagn when I brought in supplies there in a C-130 in 1968. I thought he had given up his clandestine pursuits, but I hear he is back at it at an undisclosed location.

Comments: Billy,

My wife and I met you in Branson a few days ago. You signed our book but I hadn't had time to read it yet because I was studying for the CPA exam. I finished the test and finally got to read the book. I couldn't put it down. There was a lot of serious material in there, but I enjoyed your sense of humor. I laughed so hard about your boss's ride with you in the old car with the hole in the floor that my sides hurt. You've had an amazing life. We also enjoyed your talk in Branson. Thanks for coming to see us!

Comments: Billy had told me some time ago he had written this book so I was waiting patiently for its release. I could not have been more pleased when I finally got it. It was so captivating that I read the entire book in one flight to the East Coast, I couldnt put it down. Only one word can describe it, "Awesome". It makes you feel a great deal of pride in our soldiers and our country. The book is surely an inspiration not only for all our military and military yet to be, but also for the cilivian readers who no doubt will get a real shot in the arm from Billy's "never quit, never give up" attitude that comes from his life story....Good Read

Comments: Billy Waugh is one of the most colorful and fascinating characters of all time. His book reflects his unique qualities while at the same time providing the layman with an inside look - and an authentic one - into the world of special operations. In an increasingly dangerous world, we need more like Billy. Billy you are the best and I am proud to know you!

With warm best wishes,

Comments: Hey Billy, It was great seeing you again at SOAR. I am priveledged and honored to have been a crewchief on one of the taxicabs that served you great men. So far I have only read a few chapters, and am greatly enjoying your easy and down to earth style. I think I have a good picture of why it was so hazardous to hang out with you back then. (so I've heard) Even though I have only read a short part of your book so far, my gut tells me it will be keeping up for at least a couple of nites with a whole new perspective of just who the men were that I had such a life changing experience with as I turned 21 in the Nam.

I arrived in Phu Bai about two days after Oscar Eight. I was a scared young man once I realized the situation. It was men like Skip Minnicks and yourself that taught me how to operate in spite of fear. I am greatful for the inspiration of veteran SF men in my life. I hope I left others with the same inspiration. The book was great reading!

Lew's admiration for Billy Waugh has personally been communicated to me. I look forward to reading the story of this great soldier's life.
