  • Author: Jack Jacobs and Douglas Century A Medal of Honor recipient looks back at his own service in the Vietnam War—and ahead to America’s future. Jack Jacobs was acting as an advisor to the South Vietnamese when he and his men came under devastating attack. Wounded, 1st Lt. Jacobs took command and withdrew the unit, returning again and again, saving fourteen lives—for which he received the Medal of Honor. Here, Col. Jacobs tells his stirring story of heroism, honor, and the personal code by which he has lived his life, and expounds with blunt honesty and insight his views on our contemporary world, and the nature and necessity of sacrifice. If Not Now, When? is a compelling account of a unique life at both war and peace, and the all-too-often unexamined role of the citizenry in the service and defense of the Republic. About the Author Jack Jacobs retired from the Army as a full Colonel in 1987, after more than twenty years of service. Today, he is widely regarded as one of the world’s most knowledgeable—and outspoken—military analysts. His career has bridged the disparate worlds of the military, business and academia. Jacobs serves on a number of charitable boards of directors and is the Vice Chairman of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation. He holds the McDermott Chair of Humanities and Public Affairs at the US Military Academy and appears about 500 times annually on television, commenting on defense issues, terrorism, and international affairs.
  • Memoirs of a Combat Service Support Soldier By: CW4 (Retired) Kenneth B.N. "Pete" Hill About the Book The Vietnam War was finally over, but not officially ended. That would not happen until August of 1975. The years leading up to that date found the Army with low mo- rale and low troop numbers. The time was right for a young painter from Pasadena, Texas to enlist and try to forge his own path. At the time the Army was accepting indi- viduals who wanted to join the ranks but that had not completed High School, that was his only chance and he took it. This book describes his journey from the rank of Buck Private (E1) to Chief Warrant Officer Four (CW4). Honing his skills and craft along the way with his myriad of worldwide assignments. He started as a mechanic in support units and ended running some of the Army's largest maintenance facilities. In his later career, he was even asked to assist in rewriting Army Regulations and briefing Generals in the Pentagon. The road was not always paved, and in some cases, it was pot marked with huge craters that had to be pole-vaulted over to achieve his goal. His journey takes him around the world and through various positions and historic Di- visions. Starting his career in the famous 82nd Airborne Division set the tone for his duty performance for the next twenty- eight years. Tours in Germany during the Cold War honed his ability to succeed in the Army Logistical World. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. About the Author CW4 (Ret) Kenneth B.N.
