From the moment I began reading 1SG Steen's story, I found it hard to put the book down. This book almost puts you in the middle of the battles the soldiers of Black Knight Alfa fought and there were many. Despite being out numbered on most missions, the soldiers of Black Knight Alfa fought bravely, courageously, but most of all they fought wisely. Using their enemy's tactics against them, the men of Black Knight Alfa outfoxed and defeated their enemy. The speed at which they humped the bush, the mountains and flatland in order to ambush their enemy was superhuman. Their patrol of the Ay Shau Valley was nothing short of a miracle. A miracle that they could bring so much death and destruction to the enemy while keeping their movements secret. One can almost feel the heat and humidity of the jungle as 1SG Steen tells his soldier's story in that God forbidden valley.
1SG Steen truly loves his brave soldiers. He is certainly an NCO who who knows what it means to be an NCO. Never an easy job but a job that is very rewarding if done correctly always placing the soldiers first.
God Bless you men of the Black Knight Alfa (alpha and omega) wherever you might be today. You were victorious! Thank you for your service.
