Jack Lewis said of his military service, “served as team sergeant to Tactical
PSYOP Team 1291, a slice of Tactical PSYOP Detachment 1290 from the 361st PSYOP CO (Tactical), 12th PSYOP Battalion (Moffet
Field). We were deployed to NW Iraq for OIF III from summer 2004 through summer '05, first supporting 2nd
Infantry Division's 3-2 SBCT, then 1-25 SBCT from 25th ID. Along the way, we also supported Task Force
Freedom, MNCI, the National Guard's 81st BDE.” Jack Lewis is the author of Nothing in
Reserve: true stories, not war stories.
According to the book description of Nothing in Reserve,
it “invites the reader to an intimate glimpse of one middle-aged soldier's journey to Iraq and back. True stories set
in wartime, these are not war stories. Jack Lewis offers an unexpectedly vulnerable glimpse into one of the timeless tests
men have faced: going to war, and returning home.
While the veteran will find honesty and truth within, this book is accessible
to the uninitiated as well. Early stories give an authentic but often funny glimpse of military life, building to a crisis
of personality all too common among returning soldiers. Exploring
the universal human question of how we move through our lives, acknowledging mortality and pain without becoming lost within
it, Jack shares with us his own journey toward elusive redemption.”
