    Excellent introduction to a great series! I read this short story after reading most of the series. I found it to be an exceptional introduction of the main character in this series, Calvin Stokes. This character is the epidemiy of the marines that serve our country at posts around the world. I highly recommend you read the whole series as the author, C.G.Cooper, has given us a glimpse into the minds of the brave men and women who serve to keep America free.

    Prequel to the series This short story tells of a recruit going through Marine Corps boot camp. I don't like to give out details as I always felt it may ruin it for someone else wanting to read it. The story is well written with great attention to details. It does leave you wondering what's next in line for the recruit & his fellow squad members. Prequel to the series This short story tells of a recruit going through Marine Corps boot camp.

    A great way to introduce Cal Stokes and his step to the Marine Corps. As with all the Cooper short stories and books the characters are well defined with tremendous insight on how the characters think, and react to various situations. "Running", sets the mold for Cal's future decision making and attitude. A great way to introduce Cal Stokes and his step to the Marine Corps.

    This is a short story set in a marine boot camp. The author supplies his own cautions but as such settings go the language here is about what one would expect and not exaggerated. I found no editorial errors. A young recruit is taught a lesson in team spirit. Being the best is pointless if you don’t build your team.

    'Running' was an emotional read for me. I actually teared up. The campfire was impressive. A great short read that gives me a look at what Cal went through emotionally and the beginning of what makes him the man he is to become. A must read. 'Running' was an emotional read for me.

    Still thirsty! This was just a very small sip of water to a parched reader. Why end this story here? The Stokes character is a compelling subject, and his exploits as a Marine would be an interesting read.

    Running C.G. Cooper Calvin Stokes is a recruit. Top of his class. A loner. Not well liked, initially. He has a personal burden he has kept to himself. The others recruits are unaware of his personal hardship. Once they become aware their opinions of him dramatically shift.

    The marine recruites are being worked hard since the 9/11 attack! Getting ready to go to war! One of the recruits named Carl Stokes, Jr. Got in trouble during boot camp and the platoon leaders got creative to work things out!

    Run The story is a wonderful example of what a short story should contain pathos humour and a good characters ace.

    I liked this. Insightful, excellent close up of a group that takes care of its own. Those who make the cut are the best and proud to be an integral part of the core.

After a short memorial service to honor each family member lost, things change and Cal becomes part of the unit. As they say, the rest is history. Thanks for the insight into how much family means to our men and women who are serving our military.

    Wow! As I was preparing to read Book 11, The Zimmer Doctrine, I stumbled across this (very) short story. I sat down, started reading, and some 45 minutes later I find myself trying to put one of my most important, emotional reading experiences into words...Well, please suffice it to say that this powerful story of gaining meaning and direction from ultimate loss has provided me with yet another significant insight into the character and life of Calvin Stokes and our United States Marine Corps...

    Short story about Cals early military days. The Cal described here hardly sounds like the later person he becomes. Insert space filler here. Spaceeeeeeeee. Spaceeeeeeeed. Good grief.

    Easy read enjoy the fast pace. Would read more by the author. The author keeps your suspecting something else in the book is going to happen,then hits hard with something else. Great read.
