        That's our Skoblin.

        He's getting a head start on his summer reading list. I can see him now under a beach umbrella, cold beer in the cooler, and a stack of books written in Russian next to his folding chair.

                        • Just finished reading "Death and Honor" by WEB Griffith (and WE Butterworth IV).

                          Interesting story. Even if ficticious, he provides the reader some flavor of the situation in Argentina during World War 2.

                          • I recently finished

                            The Run-Up to the Punch Bowl, by John Nolan, about his experience as a Marine rifle platoon leader in Korea. Author does a good job of making his story seem fresh and putting the story in a larger context to explain how we ended up fighting in Korea.

                            Devils in Exile, by Chuck Hogan. A novel, about an Iraq war vet who joins a rip 'n run crew of fellow vets in Boston. Good read.

                            Just started, Stettin Station, by David Downing, third in a series set in WWII Berlin.
