Riassunto: For Love of Life and Country details the life of Dean Hunter, encapsulating the impulses, ideas, discoveries, and beliefs that have formed and nurtured Americans over the past five decades. The author?s invincible beliefs, his love of life, and devotion to his country, carry him from the Boy Scouts of America through high school, into the U.S. Marine Corp?s rigorous boot camp training and on into combat in Korea. The book takes him through his twenty-year service as an Air Force pilot; including five years as a fighter pilot in the Southeast Asia conflict. From growing up in a small American town during the trying times of World War II, to serving his country, the experiences related here are humorous, thoughtful, tragic, and joyous. For Love of Life and Country is as American as John Wayne and apple pie.
