I can't find the full 3 pages, but this is the first paragraph from Suttree by C. McCarthy. One of my favorite opening passages, worth a read.
I don't know a single one of these people that isn't a huge creepy loser.
I don't understand young single men with no dependents that join the national guard. It makes sense for someone that is already settled in an area and has a family, and wants the benefits.

I'm going to wear my issued military boots, which are heavy but otherwise pretty durable. I am borrowing my friend's kelty red cloud 6650 which I am sure has plenty of room, and comes with a camel back. Other than that, I don't have any gear. I am going by myself, so I think I am...
