to the book description of Staff Monkeys: A Stockbroker's Journey Through the Global War on Terror,
it “is not a typical military war journal; it is a chronological and humorous accounting of a former stockbroker's observations
during his military deployments from April 2005 through September 2009. After being recalled to the Army, Peter Clark served
in East Africa as well as numerous Middle East hot spots. After his deployment to Africa, the fun and games were just beginning
for Peter and over the next few years found himself in Iraq, Afghanistan, Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Kyrgyzstan.
What the Army didn't know, or overlooked, was that Peter had a sharp sense of humor and wasn't afraid to use it. War is a
very serious business, yet strange and comical events do occur and US Army Staff Monkey, LTC Peter Clark, a modern day Bill
Mauldin, tells about them in a most entertaining way.”
