Soldier of Fortune Turns 35

I always thought that if I wrote what went on behind the scenes of Soldier of Fortune magazine, it would, without a doubt, be a best seller.

* Lieutenant Colonel Allen West (FL-22), Iraq, Afghanistan & Gulf wars

* Lieutenant Colonel Steve Stivers (OH-15), Iraq war

* Captain Adam Kinzinger (IL-11), Iraq & Afghanistan wars
