An attention holder the whole time. Guardian Angel is a book that held my mind with so many questions and fantasies of my wanting’s for the Special Warfare lifestyle. I have read this book for two reason’s, the first is that I am currently enlisted in the US Army and signed my contract for Airborne Infantry with Ranger Selection, so I have many questions of what lifestyle I am getting myself into. The second, and main reason, is for a school project on ethnography for skydivers. Ethnography is a descriptive and submissive way into a culture and society to everyone understands. For the skydiver’s culture, I will place myself in the shoes in any way shape or form, and try to understand why the do what they love to do, and even how they do it. I’m trying to relate skydiver’s with Pararescueman because these men live their lives to protect other’s, SO OTHER’S MAY LIVE. PJ’s skydived, or Halo Jump, or any other type of jump, quite frequently. I have read in the book they jump from moving helicopters to the ocean below. This book is very descriptive and visually compelling when reading, “Our top sergeant was furious. Red faced and apoplectic, he began cussing and yelling at everyone until PJ Brian Berg calmly said, “Sergeant Wagner, no sense in crying over spilt milk!”(Sine 60) Mr. Sine himself is a phenomenal writer when it comes to what his experiences were and how he wrote to the reader, is definitely an attention holder. “My bemused teammates cautiously peered over the ledge and saw me crucified on a giant prickly pear cactus. I felt like I was nailed to the plant, unable to move a muscle.” (Sine 49) I, myself, got a huge kick out of the mistakes and injuries he had received when going through training because it shows me, many true warriors are who they are through mistakes and pain, they just learn from them.
