    General del Valle served honerable, and often (it would seem) above and beyond the call. His service record is admirable (mostly, he relates that he occationally "over-celebrated.") On the whole, he was one of many thousands of men and women that have served (and still serve) in the US Marine Corps and the other US military branches deserving to be called "heroic." During his alustrious carreer, General Valle rubbed shoulders with President Roosevelt, General Douglas MacArthur, various royalty a General del Valle served honerable, and often (it would seem) above and beyond the call. His service record is admirable (mostly, he relates that he occationally "over-celebrated.") On the whole, he was one of many thousands of men and women that have served (and still serve) in the US Marine Corps and the other US military branches deserving to be called "heroic." During his alustrious carreer, General Valle rubbed shoulders with President Roosevelt, General Douglas MacArthur, various royalty and potentates. In between all that, he helped fight several wars and frequently saved the country. The author occationally adds an anecdote, some of which made me laugh out loud even now as I recall them. Beiong a Marine General, He is also always clear about his stand on Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Despotism, and any other -ism that crops up. After his retirement from the USMC, General del Valle worked for IT&T. At this point the book takes a somewhat more political tone. A staunch anti-communist, the General is gravely concerned 'the Communist threat' and international bankers' conspiracies. He concludes with an uncomfortably long quote from the National Socialists.
