The official tie-in book to the wildly popular Facebook page, featuring brand-new crazy, off-the-wall, outrageously funny, and downright “awesome” pearls of wisdom from real-life drill sergeants and instructors from all branches of the military. Sweat dries. Blood clots. Bones heal. Suck it up, buttercup. After his deployment in Afghanistan, Dan Caddy began swapping great drill sergeant stories by e-mail with other combat veterans—an exchange with friends that would grow into the dedicated Facebook page, “Awesome Sh*t My Drill Sergeant Said.” But what began as a comedic outlet has evolved into a robust online community and support network that conducts fundraisers for and donates to military charities, has helped veterans struggling with PTSD and other issues, and on numerous occasions, literally saved lives. Now, Caddy shares more great DS stories—most never before seen—in this humorous collection. Often profane, sometimes profound, yet always entertaining, these rants from real life soldiers are interspersed with lively sidebars, Top 10 lists, stories from fans, one-liners, and more. For anyone who has suffered a hard-ass manager (in uniform or not), Awesome Sh*t My Drill Sergeant Said will add a much needed dose of humor to the day.

It Was All a Dream by B. MAC It Was All a Dream captures the mind of people who love music, comedy and family gatherings. In the hood, there is always that one dude who is trying to be successful in the music industry, but has it hard finding his way. Most of the time, he is better than a lot of the artists in the business. However, he lacks resources and the right promotion. No matter what, his hunger won’t let him quit. He will stop at nothing to be successful; even if it means rap wars, constant battles, club fights and gun play. It Was All a Dream is a work of fiction that everyone from the ghetto can relate to. Most people in the rap industry will agree with the hardship of being successful, while others will act as if it simple. But the challenge the artist and producer go through in this book would make any real up-and-coming artist laugh and wonder, at the same time, if he or she really wants to be an artist.

In the Eyes of a Military Man by Shawn Lawson Anybody who serves in the military is considered a hero, a patriot. It is a profession held in high esteem in every corner of the world, especially in the United States. However, there are things in the military, particularly in the Army, that is anything but noble. Things that only a military man could see. Shawn Lawson, a young retiree from the US Army, candidly recounts his personal experiences as an enlisted man, from his training as a new recruit to his service in the different divisions of the Army within the different forts around the United States and overseas in Korea. He bluntly describes the realities and absurdities in the Army that are often ignored and how he dealt with it, while at same time facing stressful personal problems. Soldiers either talk about heroism or the better side of things and humorous tales, but not being a follower subject to some abuses by higher-ranking officers. This is what Lawson has chosen to expose. This is what happened to him. This is not to disrespect the whole US Army. About the Author Shawn Lawson was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He served in the United States Army, during which he was also stationed in South Korea. He now lives in Denver.

Undercover Epicenter Nurse blows the lid off the COVID-19 pandemic. What would you do if you discovered that the media and the government were lying to us all? And that hundreds, maybe thousands of people were dying because of it? Army combat veteran and registered nurse Erin Olszewski’s most deeply held values were put to the test when she arrived as a travel nurse at Elmhurst Hospital in the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic. After serving in Iraq, she was back on the front lines—and this time, she found, the situation was even worse. Rooms were filthy, nurses were lax with sanitation measures, and hospital-acquired cases of COVID-19 were spreading like wildfire. Worse, people who had tested negative multiple times for COVID-19 were being labeled as COVID-confirmed and put on COVID-only floors. Put on ventilators and drugged up with sedatives, these patients quickly deteriorated—even though they did not have coronavirus when they checked in. Doctors-in-training were refusing to perform CPR—and banning nurses from doing it—on dying patients whose families had not consented to “Do Not Resuscitate” orders. Erin wasn’t about to stand by and let her patients keep dying on her watch, but she knew that if she told the truth, people wouldn’t believe her. It was just too shocking. Willing to go to battle for her patients, Erin made the decision to go deep undercover, recording conversations with other nurses, videos of malpractice, and more. She began to share what she found on social media. Unsurprisingly, she was fired for it. Now, Erin is standing up to tell the whole horrifying story of what happened inside Elmhurst Hospital to demand justice for those who fell victim to the hospital’s greed. Not only must the staff be held accountable for their unethical actions; but also, this kind of corruption must be destroyed so that future Americans are not put at risks. The deaths have to end, and Erin won’t rest until the bad actors are exposed. Undercover Epicenter Nurse: How Fraud, Negligence, and Greed Led to Unnecessary Deaths at Elmhurst Hospital is a shocking and infuriating inside exposé of the American healthcare system gone wrong. At the same time, it’s the story of a woman who traveled from the small-town streets of Wisconsin, to the battlefields of Iraq, to the mean streets of Queens, on a quest to help fight for her country. With this book, the real battle has begun.

A hotel murder involves Toby Peters with one of Hollywood’s toughest stars Toby Peters wakes up with a headache, a gun in his face, and a body on the hotel-room bed. He is less surprised by the gun than by the man holding it: Marion Morrison, a.k.a John Wayne. Both of them were lured here by the dead man. The next arrival is a prostitute named Olivia, and hot on her heels is the house detective, who’s come to check on the commotion in Room 303. Reasoning that nobody knows all four of them besides the desk clerk, Teddy, the two detectives haul Teddy upstairs, where he confesses to the murder. Wayne, Peters, and Olivia all have careers to protect, so the house detective agrees to keep their names out of it. It all seems too simple. As he looks into the murder, Toby finds that powerful people want to stop him from learning what happened while he was sleeping in Room 303.
