Major David A. Combs, USA (ret.) is a retired U.S. Army Airborne Ranger who writes books based on experience gained during his military career. David A. Combs is the author of THICK LUCK: The Search for POWs & MIAs and BLACK CHINOOK: An Army Ranger's Story.

 

According to the book description of THICK LUCK: The Search for POWs & MIAs, “The riveting account of a US Army Ranger's odyssey to lead a team of investigative experts on a quest to bring home America’s POWs and MIAs still missing from the secret war in Laos and Cambodia.”

 

According to a reader of THICK LUCK: The Search for POWs & MIAs, “Thick Luck is a fascinating true adventure of the quest to find our missing soldiers lost in the Vietnam War in Laos and Cambodia. The US government has made a tremendous commitment to find them and this is the story of the men and women who risk their lives in hostile environment to do it. A rare view into the culture of the Laotian people. Heartening accounts of the families responses when given news of their loved ones.”

According to the book description of BLACK CHINOOK: An Army Ranger's Story, “The riveting account of an Army Ranger's odyssey through years of grueling service in the mostly unknown and unseen world of military special operations. This telling details the intensive training and sacrifice of America’s secret warriors.”

 

According to Diane Kasperski (Front Street Reviews), “This is a well written straight forward account of the different phases of training of an Army Ranger. Mr. Combs tells of his personal experiences while in training throughout all the phases. Without breeching protocol or security he gives detailed descriptions of some of the harrowing missions he was on. From missions in Laos, the Panama Canal and Korea you will get a true picture of what it takes to be an Army Ranger.

 

Mr. Combs tells of his dream of becoming an Army Ranger since he was in college and saw a training documentary on them. He barely made it in because there are only a certain amount of spots available per year. He had told them at the enlistment office that it "was the Rangers or nothing." He was accepted and went off to the toughest training the Army can provide.”
