For Special Forces officer-turned-writer Chester Wong, being a Green Beret was tough business. Okay, there were a few laughs—in fact, there were countless random acts of hilarity, but maybe it’s how Wong looks at life that makes the difference. InMoreFor Special Forces officer-turned-writer Chester Wong, being a Green Beret was tough business. Okay, there were a few laughs—in fact, there were countless random acts of hilarity, but maybe it’s how Wong looks at life that makes the difference.

In Yellow Green Beret: Stories of an Asian-American Stumbling around U.S. Army Special Forces, one thing is certain: becoming an Asian American Green Beret is a calling only the wild should answer.Whether or not you’re in the Army, there’s a whole lot of adventure and a whole lot of “who’d have thoughts” and “imagine thats” in this military memoir.

With short stories like “Johnnie Walker Brown,” “Wily Filipino Cell Phone Thieves,” and “Sniper School: Extending the Range of Personality Lethality,” Wong pokes fun at the ironies of special operations combat, the idiosyncrasies of military life, and the absurdities of life on the frontline- more often than not he heckles his own harebrained ways.

Each vignette is a standalone anecdote- sometimes there’s a lesson, sometimes it’s just for a laugh. He reminisces his West Point and Special Forces training, working with various militaries in Southeast Asia, and serving in Iraq and the Philippines, as well as general tidbits of military life. With a self-deprecating humor style, he leaves readers rolling with laughter and reflection on his unique observations and lessons learned from a path not often taken, which is good since this memoir is the first in a three-part collection.
