When a Marine is “broke,” it means he’s out for the count. Marines break in all kinds of ways… Physically… Emotionally… Financially… It’s just a matter of time before you have to call it in and (hopefully) skip PT for a couple of weeks.
Of course, the average Lance Corporal is much more likely to be broke monetarily than physically, as they are practically invincible from copious alcohol abuse, but it happens.
In other news, BATTLE BORN: LAPIS LAZULI is officially out and available in hardcover everywhere books are sold. BATTLE BORN: LAPIS LAZULI is the story of Sergeant King and his platoon of Marines sent to the mountains of Afghanistan’s Badakhshan Province, where they must regain control of the nation’s precious gemstone trade at the behest of the fledgling Afghan government. It is an emotional journey that I spent a lot of time and energy on, and I’m really excited to see it come to light. Click or tap the image below to purchase.
