Becoming PVT Harmon: My Journal from Army Becoming Basic Combat Training



  Ever wonder what it's like to go through Army Basic Combat Training? The reality may surprise you. For the first time ever, experience the making of a U.S. Soldier through the eyes of a Soldier-in-training. This is a behind-the-scenes glimpse at things that you'll never read about in newspapers or see on television. From the humor in "canteen bowling" to the power of believing in something bigger than ourselves, this book captures the very essence of what is considered one of the most challenging--and rewarding--transitions a civilian will make: becoming a Soldier. You will witness fear, excitement, and death. And you'll learn what separates a Soldier from a civilian.

   Whether you are a parent, a Soldier candidate awaiting training, or just someone looking for a good read, it is mandatory that you read Becoming PVT Harmon!



Casey Sean Harmon is a bestselling author and a Soldier in the U.S. Army. He has studied with the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writer's Guild, and holds a degree through American Military University. He lives with his wife and son wherever the military sends them.

Lets see a little more into the mind of Casey!

What was the hardest part of writing your book?
For me the hardest part of writing any book is simply finding time to do it. My Army career requires me to devote so much of my time and attention to the mission that I hardly have time left over at the end of the day. On top of that, I have a ten-month old son and a wonderful wife whom I strive to spend as much time with as possible.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
There are so many things I wasn’t able to capture in my journal from Basic Training, simply because of the limited amount of time I had to write. I kind of wish that I had included a few additional scenes (perhaps in a bonus section?) in the published version of my journal.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
 Simple: you can accomplish anything you set your mind to, all it takes is a little dedication, drive and faith.
