In his first book, Lauer details his time as a U.S. Army soldier overseeing the club system's finances with the Americal Division in the Republic of South Vietnam. He witnessed scandals and schemes from minor theft to large-scale embezzlement by club managers. Lauer bravely revealed what was happening, ultimately winning the Bronze Star for saving the U.S. Army today's equivalent of $3.5 million a year.

Lauer shares a story of lawlessness happening in the middle of the Vietnam war zone in the 1960s and 1970s that will surprise readers and give them new insight. He also weaves a thoughtful tale of the twists and turns that led him from soldier to successful businessman that others can learn from and apply to their own lives.

"i've known bruce for years and have always been intrigued to hear about his experiences in vietnam while serving his country. this will make a great movie!" 

  • Morgan Ernestine  President and CEO of Morton Plant healthcare foundation 

"the horrors and atrocities of the viet nam war have unfortunately manifested a selective amnesia relating to the brave men and women who followed orders and courageously served our country - heroes all of them. bruce lauer is firmly ensconced in this cohort."

  • Scott M. Dalrymple Managing Director PGIM Real Estate

"incredible story of courage against corruption during a controversial time in our nations history."

  • Rod Santomassimo CCIM Founder and President Massimo Group, LLC

"a fascinating account of navigating the complexities of the war and the us army, while trying to do the right thing." 

  • Lorie Damon Managing Director healthcare Advisory Practice


"the title had me at "debauchery," but an amazing story throughout to paint a vivid, personal picture of a tour in vietnam and the life of high character and accomplishment it formed."

  • Clarke Michalak, CFA PGIM Real Estate

"bruce's story is one of courage and inspiration to serve with excellence and face fear regardless of the possible outcomes."

  • Mark Vande Hey Executive Director PGIM Real Estate

"an engaging story of an american soldier in vietnam battling the consequences of doing the harder right over the easy wrong in a corrupt setting...with his life on the line."

  • Steve Ernst Cushman & Wakefield

"engaging story of a soldier serving his country in unusual circumstances during an unpopular war. a real story from a true hero and patriot."

  • John B. Jackson, SIOR, CCIM Director, Industrial & Land Services

"a captivating story of vietnam many may not know about and sadly i'm sure much of this continues today."

  • Dale Taysom Real estate professional with PGIM aka Prudential
