Derwin Lester was a medic in the Army, and later the Army National Guard,  for 13 years. Derwin takes a wry look at his Army career and relates some hilarious stories from basic training. He also takes us through his deployment to a relatively quiet Iraq and a few near- misses involving stolen uniforms and dumpster diving for computers.

Derwin also indulges his creative side, writing military themed science fiction and owns his own publishing imprint, Divided By Zero Books

You can find his catalog here:

Derwin also hosts his own podcast, The Blanket Fortress of Solitude:
