No Sh*t There I was. An Anthology of War Stories

I am interested in compiling stories from combat controllers for a book with the title above. "No Shit, there I was.... An Anthology of War Stories." My favorite part of gatherings has always been when my dad breaks out the war stories for company. It occurred to me that there are probably plenty of family members who would love to have those kind of stories written down in some official way. I read Steve Stipp's blog http://asiwc.blogspot.com/ "A Sheep in Wolf's Clothing" a few years ago about his experience going through CCS. The writing was so introspective and honest I found a whole new appreciation for what my dad did as a career Combat Controller. I think there are a lot of us kids and probably wives of Combat Controllers (and now grandchildren) who don't really have a true understanding of what the job actually is. I would love to have you guys tell us in your own words.

I am looking for funnier moments, but I'll take what I can get. Anything about the process of qualifying, CCS, training missions, the millions of schools you went to, and actual war stories. Once I see if current or retired combat controllers are interested in submitting stories for this book I'll see which publishing route to go. I'm thinking it will most likely be self-published. On the off chance that an agent wants the project, I want to make sure any proceeds go to the CCA or some other worthy charity. Just so you know, my interest is purely getting these stories put together for the families.

If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to have the project announced on the CCA blog. Anyone interested in submitting a story can email me at Jessicarrot@gmail.com

Thank you so much!
