Ben, pictured above, is a really damn funny dude and I always enjoyed listening to his war stories while at DINFOS, which paled in comparison to my Air Force complaints about my steak being not cooked to the right temperature while at war.
This quote that I plucked from the Amazon page says it all to me:
“Tupper is a true grunt. He has that crazy, infectious sense of humor based on the absurd, grasps the poignancy without sentimentalism, and tells the reader straight up how it is to be a grunt adviser in the zany land of Afghanistan.”
-Bing West, author ofThe Village
I am really stoked to read Ben’s book when I get back to the States and believe it or not, this overachiever has another book coming down the pike.
