Rogue Bee: True story of Lt. Col. Darrin Curtis who risked his career trying to stop burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan


"My narrative "faction": (true story, names changed) about Burn Pits in Iraq and Afghanistan. Entitled "Rogue Bee," this is the harrowing story of Lt. Col. Darren Curtis who risked his career to testify before the U.S. Senate Democratic Policy Committee, November, 2009. 

The U.S. Army is burning trash in Iraq and Afghanistan--munitions, body parts, medicines. Tom Clancy meets Michael Crichton in this suspense-filled, graphic story of: politics; corruption; war; medicine; and science, geographically spanning the farthest reaches of the globe. This is all true. Names have been changed to protect the innocent.
