|Plot Summary of Stand By to Fall Out|
P. Chadz was a Marine; a Marine's Marine. He was in the top one percent of Marines by the time he was enlisted for three months, and the stories that fill the binders of the book are of the "forty-five months that followed."
He takes the reader from California, where he was trained as a grunt, through anti-terroirst school on the East coast and then duty for such in the European theater. He brings the reader inside the barracks, inside the small unit's mentality, inside the grunt Marine's mind. You are allowed to travel the streets of Europe with the band of brothers with whom he bonded, learning as he does from each bar, base and brothel he came in contact with.
Eventually it is time for a return to the states, where he brings the reader for an inside look at the lifestyle of a Marine grunt unit, both on base and on a six month cruise. Again the reader is allowed the see the tapestry of the Marines, from ship life duties to shore line adventures from Turkey to the south of France.
