Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.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.
