Why did I write My Last Baggage Call Aboard Air Force One?
I had always wanted to write about my journey from being a teenage father to enlisting in the military. My struggle with leaving everything behind that I knew and loved in order to provide a better life for my son.

From the moment that I raised my hand, I knew that I would make the military my life long career. Never in my wildest dreams could I have predicted that I would risen the ranks and end up working in the White House for three Presidents.

During my twenty-year career, I would experience things that the average person would not see nor do. Along the way, I would also find the love of my life to share this incredible journey.

For many years I had played with the idea of writing my book. It wasn’t until I received some news in December 2013 that would turn my world upside down, pushing me to finally put my thoughts down to paper. The news that I had received was that I had Stage 3 kidney cancer. Like most people, you hear the word cancer and you automatically think the worst. How could I have cancer when I didn’t have any symptoms? Being in the military, you have to stay fit. At that moment, I decided that if God pulled me through this, I wouldn’t waste any more time and write this book.

I wanted to ensure that I left a legacy for my family. I didn’t matter to me if the book was popular or not. I had to get my story out and maybe, just maybe, inspire someone who feels like their life is meaningless

  1. Glenn,

    Thank you so much for writing this book and telling your story. Your book has “REALLY” blessed me and my wife and we enjoyed everything about it. I bring it to work with me every day, then after work, I place it by my computer at home, as I try to craft my thoughts and craft my story. You even encouraged me to create a draft “vision” cover so that I can stay focused. I hope others get a chance to read your story, especially our military veterans, so that they can be inspired to write they story too.
