I read “A Rumor of War” by Philip Caputo. It is a raw and moving account of his time in Vietnam. He was shipped to Da Nang and was with the first ground combat unit deployed to Vietnam. It’s one of the best books I have read that account for the indifference that war can create and smash the idealism that men may have when enlisting. It brings you inside a man who battled on the front lines and endured the psychological warfare that can darken even the just of heart. It’s not just an account of war or a journalist review of historical facts, it a heartfelt evolution of a man in war.
I am currently taking another crack at reading “Hot, Flat, & Crowded” by Thomas Friedman. He is one of my favorite authors and Op-Ed columnist for the NY Times. It’s a gripping plea to get us to change our outlook and policies on the destabilizing climate change and rising competition for energy. This book reinforces one of the reasons I am proud to work for Aladtec. Bringing services to the cloud can drastically decrease the amount of paper used in their daily operations. I like to tell my clients and prospects that I am helping them go green and saving the world one tree at a time. It gets a good laugh but it is VERY true. We help save unbelievable amounts of paper and ink through our services. Along with gas, as members can access their schedule from anywhere rather than having to make a drive in to do anything. I love it!
