13 Years of Service

My Personal Collection of Military Bizarreness

Authored by Per Matthias Griebler

"There are so many serious biographies and stories about army operations out there, well this is kind of a biography too - but totally different ..."

Per M. Griebler

Per M. Griebler is a retired German Master Sergeant who joined the Army in November 1998, and started as a Private in the Mechanized Infantry in Koblenz, Rhineland-Palatinate. In 2003, after tours as a Drill Sergeant, Armored Personnel Carrier Commander, and a Soldier in different companies and battalions all over Germany, he went right back where he started from. But this time as an MP, where he eventually specialized as an Air Marshal. He was also assigned as a Company Liaison Officer to the United States Army Garrison Mannheim, in Baden-Wurttemberg for more than seven years.

All of the stories contained within this book are real, attained from various deployments and impressions he has had over the span of a 13 years-long career in the service. With the humorous situations, and sometimes awkward impositions encountered, it is easy for all service members to identify themselves within this book. MSG Griebler is still in the Reserve, and thanks to a rewarding career, remains in contact with most of the units he has worked with, and friends he has made along the way.

"This collection of stories, the cause, and what the proceeds are for," he says, "is a project from the heart."
