Carlo: A Life of Service to His Country
Tate Publishing, 2008 - 217 pages
The primary function of the Department Of Defense is to fight and win wars. It is staffed primarily by high level career military officers. But behind them are a large number of civilian technicians who create the tools of war and advise when and how they can be used. Frank W. Artusio draws upon his experiences to present one of them in Carlo: A Life of Service to His Country. Carlo is as much a hero as are the Generals, Admirals and Congressmen that he serves. He doesn't get medals and his name is not in the headlines, but he is indispensable in the service he gives to his country. But can the child of an underprivileged family, a child with no great academic or athletic abilities, rise to the level required to supervise such development? And in so doing can he achieve a position of power and international significance? In Carlo: A Life of Service to His Country the good and sometimes the evil provided by the Department Of Defense are addressed. The ability to develop the tools of war and death become commonplace, but we cannot lose sight of the moral effects of their successes.
