After a careful review by the Intelligence Community for Publication, Drone Warrior has performed a stunning service, giving the reader a gut level feel for the U.S. War on Terror from a decorated soldier’s perspective.
Those of us who served in Vietnam and similar conflicts since can totally relate to this masterpiece of honesty.
Brett Velicovich pulls no punches. The mental stress, teamwork, tragedy and after effects in this modern, technological killing process can be felt with every line. The impact on the man himself and on those with whom he worked has not been spared in its detail and its effects.
Having left the service, Brett is now involved in harnessing and controlling the technology for peaceful purposes like wildlife preservation and management. Those of us who have made similar transitions applaud, commend and recommend the book and the man.
Read it to become informed and consider the billions we are spending on this warfare today as well as the impact on our youth and our future.
