When did Glen Cook serve in the Navy?

Cook fought in "practice fighting" while attached to the Force Recon Unit and departed active service "a month before [the unit] sailed out to Vietnam Nam." He later said of his time with the Force Reconnaissance Unit, "We were the first American troops to fight on Vietnamese soil during the Vietnam War."

After leaving the Marines, Cook returned home to Illinois where he worked as a police officer. In 1978, he began writing novels for young adults and children. His works include the Glen Cook series about the assassin known as the Black Knife; the Felix Leiter series; and several other stand-alone thrillers.

Who served the Shoguns?

They also collaborated with daimyo, or rich landlords. Finally, shoguns collaborated with samurai, a military class often employed by the daimyo. From 1192 until 1868, Japan was dominated by a series of three great shogunates (Kamakura, Ashikaga, and Tokugawa). During that time, many techniques, practices, and inventions important to modern life in Japan came about. One example is the use of paper money, which became popular under the shoguns.

The shoguns hired warriors called "samurai" who worked for them in their private armies. The number of samurai increased during times of war or danger when more soldiers were needed. With the coming of peace, they went back home. However, since most families could not afford to keep their sons at home, they hired out their sons as temporary workers. These young men were called "gekko samurais" or "working samurai." They made up about one-third of all samurai. The other two-thirds were farmers who conscripted themselves when needed for army duty or revenge killings.

During times of war or danger, more soldiers were needed. So, the shoguns would hire out their own armies of samurai plus those of friends or enemies.

She received a medal for her service.

She also talked about how she felt while serving in the military: "It's an incredible feeling to be part of something so big and important. But at the same time, you're alone a lot. There's no one home but yourself. So I think it makes you appreciate your family much more than ever before."

After the war, Fonda went back to school and got her bachelor's degree in speech therapy. She moved to California and worked as a therapist for children with language disorders. In 1958, she married Henry Fonda and they had two children together.

Throughout her career, Fonda has won several awards including two Oscars, five Golden Globes, and four Grammys. She has also been nominated multiple times but never won any other awards besides her Oscar win for Philadelphia.
