AS YOU WERE ON amazon.com 6 Years, 10 Months ago  
This book is presently available on amazon.con for April 1, 2011

SUMMER, 1974 — Six teenaged boys died and fifty-four were injured in an explosion at Canadian Forces Base Valcartier, Quebec. A live grenade inadvertently made its way into a box of dud ammunition, and its pin was pulled during a lecture on explosives safety. One hundred and forty boys survived, each isolated in their trauma, yet expected to carry on with their lives. Thirty-four years later, Gerryf who was an 18-year-old sergeant that summer and one of the first on the scene after the explosion, received an unexpected e-mail from his former sergeant-major, triggering a journey into memory, a quest for a true picture of what had happened on that day. In As You Were, Gerryf pieces together the story of how a series of preventable mistakes led to tragedy. The only full account of an event that received minor attention at the time, As You Were is the story of a normal day turned horrific, how duty, responsibility, and honor make ordinary people take extraordinary measures, and how an embarrassed military did their best to ignore this devastating incident.
About the Author
Gerryf spent six years as an army cadet, climbing the ranks until he became an instructor. Leaving the cadets at 19, he became an actor, working on stage and in film and television for more than 20 years. He now works as a marketing manager at an information technology company.
