Niceville, FL, September 19, 2010 -- Staff Monkeys, A Stockbrokerâ€˜s Journey Through the Global War on Terror authored by U.S. Army officer Lt. Colonel Peter Clark is being released in September of 2010 by Patriot Media, Inc., an independent publisher doing business in Niceville, Florida.
Staff Monkeys is a chronological journal about Colonel Clarkâ€˜s various and unusual assignments during his deployment to the Middle East and Central Asia from April, 2005 through September 2009, in support of the Global War on Terror. Not a typical military war journal, it is a somewhat sarcastic and extremely humorous description of Clarkâ€˜s military deployments.
According to LTC Clark "Somewhere between the general with the brilliant idea and the soldier taking the fight to the enemy, are staffs who translate those bright ideas into actionable plans The Staff Monkeys."
One reviewer said of Staff Monkeys, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I havenâ€˜t read anything this funny about serving in the military since Bill Mauldinâ€˜s Willie and Joe.Ã¢â‚¬ War is a very serious business, but there are some strange and comical things that occur, and Peter Clark tells about them in a very entertaining way.

Between military tours, he worked as a stockbroker in California. When asked why he wrote the book he said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I promised everybody in my office at the brokerage firm I would keep them posted on what I was up to when I was recalled. One deployment led to another and after a few years, and a lot of updates, my friends encouraged me to make my journal into a book to show that even in war, there is also humor if you look for it.Ã¢â‚¬
