AS I RECALL, is a series of short stories recalling personal experiences of the author when a young Marine serving in Korea. Unlike most memoirs describing the horrors of war Tsegeletos describes the sights, sounds and what is most fascinating, the thoughts that ran through his mind during each incident. An occasional quip added while engaged in life threatening action, brings to the reader lighthearted relief to what at the very least is serious business indeed. At the age of 17, George along with many of his high school friends joined a Marine reserve unit located close to home. 1950 and half way around the globe North Korea invaded South Korea, but to these young Marines it seemed too far away to be of much concern. Looking forward to their graduation, summer vacation and beginning a new career, whether college or work, their world is suddenly turned upside down when they are rushed into a very uncertain military future. From his first step on North Korean soil through each story that follows, including the final narrative describing the experience of survival in the cold frozen environment during the epic Chosin Reservoir Campaign, you will be taking each step with him. Included are illustrations interspersed between stories and copies of actual letters sent home. The book leaves you with a true picture of life in a foxhole as seen through the eyes of a young Marine. Tsegeletos will hold the readers attention and win the hearts of all moms with a young son in the U.S. Marines.
