Author Information

Miller, Rory |s In the course of a week almost everything in my biography is wrong. I'm no longer a tactical team leader, no longer a sergeant working for a corrections agency in the northwest. Just Rory Miller, citizen. Citizen on his way to Iraq.To teach what I have been doing for the last seventeen years in a new place, a new culture, with a new language barrier. I've been stuck for a couple of years wondering what the next steps were on my path. This looks like it. This will be very cool.
