SOG’s chain of command for missions and after-action reports extended to the White House and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

""Although memories fade with time, there are some that will immediately jump back into your consciousness with the hair-trigger of a scent, a sound, and in the beginning of this second book by CCN recon man Tilt Meyer, a misty rain over windswept treetops springs such a memory while listening to his youngest daughter play the piano. Such is the plunge on which the author takes his reader right from the start of this action-filled book of the memories of some of CCN’s recon men as they take the fight right to the North Vietnamese Army on the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
Military history readers are fortunate that so many of SOG’s warriors are excellent writers otherwise these snapshots of a time in history when young men strapped on their gear and headed into the mists of the deadliest jungle in the world at that time would have been lost forever.
