Stationed with the Army at Camp Eagle in I-Corps, Jackson has few of the amenities and must learn to adapt to ant-infested food, giant rats, and howitzers that fire over his hooch day and night.

Yet he still maintains his optimism and wit. Even a life-threatening injury doesn't diminish his spirit or the very positive message of this book. 'Naked' reaffirms the importance of supporting our troops.
