ABSTRACT
The author relates his transition from being a hunter to being an infantryman of the U.S. Army. He learned that as a hunter, one should provide food for the family while as a soldier, one should give his men a secure route. He realized that failure in a hunter's mission rarely brings about his death in the modern world while failure in an infantryman's mission can mean death for him and his troops. He found that throughout his military career, hunters make the best soldiers.
