In his new book titled, “USAF Air Commando Secret Wars from Laos to Latin America” (published by Xlibris) Lt. Col. Eugene D. Rossel, USAF ret. gives a rare, insider’s look into special operations of the military, particularly the so-called secret wars involving the United States Air Force. This book illustrates the courage and honor of the military and the sacrifices that are sometimes inevitably made in the name of duty.

The Air Commando secret wars, Rossel shares, happened mostly during the Vietnam War time frame and was a global effort involving USAF volunteer personnel who were given official military orders that did not necessarily specify the country they served in. These operations were used to strengthen normally a poor country with little military resources and training with secret warriors frequently being there doing some of their legwork behind the scenes.

“My book covers the secret wars we participated in numerous countries which we couldn’t talk about until leaving the service and It covered activities in Vietnam, Laos, Africa, Laos, Latin America and a little of Spain,” the author says. “The main purpose of the book was for my family answering the question of “What did you do in the war dad?” and for the guys who served with me and those who didn’t return for their families.”

A timely resource on military history and operations, “USAF Air Commando Secret Wars from Laos to Latin America” is for history buffs, military and aviation enthusiasts, people who served in the USAF and their families and friends.
