Mike Truslow grew up with his father’s war stories of comradery, honor, and blood up until his father’s death during his senior year of highschool. Wanting to follow in his footsteps, on his 18th birthday, he marched into a recruiter's office and joined the United States Army. Deceived by his recruiter, he takes a support job in hopes of reclassing to infantry later. Now on Wiesbaden Army Airfield in Germany, he finds himself trapped in POGville where he will meet a basket of personalities and get his own tales of comradery.
A P.O.G. stands for everybody else, People Other than Grunts, the ones that sleep in the dirt and shoot the guns? This is not about them. This is about the people who spend most of their day in the basement of a 3-story office building doing whatever they can to not die from boredom.
