The irrepressible Sammy Bench joined the Navy during World War II and never before or after has there been such a sailor. Part con man, part savior, we follow his antics, trials and tribulations through boot camp and into a Ships Company assignment. These were the men who fought their libidos and fears; sailors who a€œcomforteda€ war widows and romanced the young ladies who creamed to do their part for the war effort. We meet Sammya€™s buddies Billy and Bernie and his girlfriend Sarah, and what a profound effect each onea€™s life has, as a result of Sammy. They struggle together to try to make sense through the later years of WWII before the Bomb ended it all. The novel grabs a hold and wona€™t let go from page one. This book could only be written by one who was there, Seaman Joseph Currey, Liberty Hound. Joseph Currey is a retired State of California Security Enforcement Officer who served in the United States Navy during the later years of World War II. He completed boot camp at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Chicago. Mr. Currey is also the author of a comedy-mystery novel titled, The Nutt House, and has written 11 short stories. He resides in Encinitas, California. Quotes: qThe Liberty Hound made my laugh and made me cry. What remarkable memories of Boots and making the most of liberty time with the ladies of Chicago and Milwaukee. We were young and invincible but we also knew that every fling might be our last. Joe Currey has captured an era on paper that is truly a page-turner. If you were a Liberty Hound, you might want to hide this book from your wife.q-Fred Puffenburger, Lt. Commander, (Ret.), Pearl Harbor Survivor qThe author puts you in the middle of the action of WW II boot camp. In the back of our minds we all thought we might become just one of the million-plus who were expected to die in the invasion of Japan, so make every day count. The Liberty Hound does just that in a most remarkable story. The action and fun never stops until the last page. Riveting!q Thanks, Joseph Currey, for such vivid memories.q-L.C.
