author signing with Brian Power

March 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Savoy Bookshop & Café presents an author signing with Brian Power for the book, A Chance to Serve. Books will be available for purchase during the signing.

About the Book
Lt. Col. Power vividly recalls a wide range of experiences from Boot Camp at Parris Island, SC; to infantry training at Camp LeJeune, NC; to Officer training at Quantico, VA. He gives us the pros and the cons from his tour as a young lieutenant in Japan, to his Reserve experiences as a junior infantry officer, to his recall to Active Duty to attend the prestigious Naval War College in Newport, RI, to his final tour at the Pentagon where he again had been recalled to Active Duty for Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.His reminiscences over more than a quarter-century of both Active and Reserve service in the Marine Corps reflect and magnify the core values (Honor, Courage, Commitment) that the Marines are taught (and you will be exposed to a few who do not always practice them). As Lt.Col. Power grew in his career he met remarkable people, was supported with outstanding loyalty from his troops, took part in significant events, and had his heart filled with acomplishment and broken by duplicity. But his love for the Corps remained intact.Power weaves an engrossing tale of intriguing characters coupled with military events and highlighted by his sometimes joyous and hilarious experiences.It’s a good read.Lt. Col. Power retired from the Marine Corps Reserve in 1993. He began his writing career after retiring from a consulting and training business he started. You can find out more about his first book, Song of Atlantis at songofatlantis.com. Mr. Power and his wife live in Rhode Island.
