Twenty-two-year-old Romanian Stefan Babamikyam wants nothing more than to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a G.I. Joe in the United States Army. But with little command of the English language and American culture, Stefan arrives in the United States completely unprepared for what he is about to face.

Left to his own devices in a strange land, Stefan soon embarks on a comical journey that tests his inner strength, patience, and perseverance. After he spends a rather frightening night in a strange woman’s house, Stefan finds shelter with another family, who soon introduces him to Father Hannigan, a kindly priest who offers to help Stefan with his English. As Stefan secures a job and settles into his new life—keeping up a steady correspondence with his girlfriend, Tatiana, back in Romania—Father Hannigan takes him to meet an Army recruiter who promises to prepare him both physically and mentally for boot camp. But no one knows that Stefan is harboring a secret that, when it comes to light, may draw the eyes of Army Counterintelligence.

G. I. Who? shares the compelling journey of a foreign army recruit as he adjusts to life in America and soon discovers that nothing is ever as easy as it seems.
