DEFICIENT: A Story of the Troubled Life and Times of a West Pointer, Class of '49 John Gess Author
Shop on Barnes & Noble


From the fear of a Japanese invasion of the West Coast after Pearl  Harbor, to the intense hazing as a plebe at West Point, to the bitter cold on the long march to the Yalu River during the early days of the Korean War, to the midnight scramble to the Czech border duting the Cuban Missile crisis, Bob Hayes lived through it all.  Then came a shock to his very being, a dubious dismissal from the  Army leading him, his wife and their five children into a troubled world of unemployment, alcohol, drugs, foreclosure and mental illness. This is the heart-wrenching story of a highly intelligent, immensely likeable West Point graduate's long, slow descent into a personal hell from which he never escaped.
