Warren Robinson planned to go to law school after completing his undergraduate degree. He saw a career in law as a chance to leave his small hometown for a new life in the big city. In another time, Robinson might have achieved his goal, but the year was 1967, and the Vietnam War was reaching its bloody height. Knowing he would be drafted if he went ahead with his plans, Robinson asked for his name to be put at the top of his community's selective service list. Doing so meant he'd have two years of military service, and then he could return to law school. A greater power had other plans for the young man. In Vietnam, Robinson would know moments of abject terror. He'd also experience the camaraderie and loyalty that came from serving in the US First Infantry Division. And one night, on guard duty in a region filled with enemy activity, he would receive a divine promise that would shape his life, both during his military service and back home. Remembering Vietnam: A Veteran's Story is a profound tribute to the thousands of service members who put their lives on the line in a hostile land. Profits from the sale of this book will be shared with veteran's charities to help support wounded veterans and their families. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Bender.

Millions of people have, at some point in their lives, waited tables. Some did it only in college or got out by sheer determination, good luck...or suicide. Others took it on as permanent employment. And many remain haunted by nightmare scenarios where they are the sole servers in restaurants packed with complaining patrons. For all those disenchanted current and former food service employees, Darron Cardosa has your back. His career began at a Texas steakhouse in 1984, and since 2008 he's vented his frustrations on the popular blog The Bitchy Waiter. A snarky mix of David Sedaris, Anthony Bourdain, Erma Bombeck, and Mo Rocca, Cardosa distills 30 years of food service into dark, funny tales - about crazy customers, out-of-control egos, and what really goes on in that fancy restaurant - that anyone who worked in the industry will recognize and relate to. 1.
