Blackwater - the most notorious contractor of the Global War on Terror.
In this scathing, honest memoir, Morgan Lerette, an Army and Air Force veteran, details the truth of working as a Blackwater operator in Iraq. Days filled with harrowing danger or mind-numbing tedium. Nights of raunchy parties with a cast of characters and antics to rival the most raucous frat house. Contractors had one goal: survive. Some didn't. Writing with deft irony and dark humor, Lerette pulls back the curtain on the Blackwater myth. He reveals a tale that is alternately laugh-out-loud absurd and cry-your-eyes-out sad. The book is published by Onward Press, a veterans non-profit. All sales contribute to its mission to help veterans publish their stories.
