Now Available – IN GARRISON by J. H. Hardin – A Service Memoir

J. H. Hardin is a "service mutt". He's an Air Force brat who spent his early childhood on military bases. In high school he joined the Army JROTC unit and spent each summer and many weekends at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. In 1978 he entered the Marine Corps where he served for 6 years. During that time, he spent 7 months deployed to an Army post, and 3 years aboard a Naval Base. He hadhis fingers in all the Armed Services.

In his own words:

I have great respect and reverence for those who've felt the sting of battle. I hold in high honor those warriors who've born the burden of front line service—no matter when they served. But, there were no wars for me to fight. I never found myself on a landing craft assaulting a beach head, or in a trench defending my perimeter. I never heard a shot fired in anger. My place was behind the lines. My specialty had me supporting the combat Marines and their missions. I was behind a desk shuffling paperwork.
