Incoming!: Secrets of a Contract Warrior in Afghanistan
Thousands of civilians dodge incoming deadly rockets every day in the Afghanistan War. Not everyone makes it out alive. Thomas Josef talks about the incoming rockets and missiles while diving for cover in bunkers. Is it worth the money? Is it a game of Russian roulette knowing you're here today and could be gone tomorrow? Incoming touches on the incredible lives Josef and others live during his four long years of living in this hellhole. The author reveals the libidinous love affairs but sometimes tumultuous exploration of life as a gay man on a military base. He forges friendships in the boring bureaucracy of supporting the fighting as they band together like prisoners behind razor wire and cut a path of hilarious hijinks to survive. Like Las Vegas, does what happens in Afghanistan stay in Afghanistan? Now, it's all revealed for the first time in Incoming.
