(This book cannot be returned.)
Bob Loewer was an American counterintelligence special agent who served in the Mekong Delta as a district intelligence advisor in the Phoenix Program.
Captain Loewer, then a military intelligence second lieutenant on a combat assignment, tells his story of living with, advising, and fighting alongside the Vietnamese Intel squad of T n Trụ district. He relates his first-hand experiences with the men of Intel and the US 2/60 Recon platoon among the rice-roots people of the Upper Mekong.
Software development and white hat hacking were his career choices after returning from Vietnam. Bob discloses in detail, publicly for the first time, his design and architecture of the controversial and widely publicized Carnivore packet sniffer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Now, fifty years after his combat experience, he candidly discusses the symptoms, progression, and workplace challenges of PTSD from his physical and psychological combat wounds.
