Kregg P.J. Jorgenson spent seven years in the U.S. Army; three as an infantryman, four as a journalist. After surviving a number of missions as an LRRP with Hotel Company, 75th Infantry (Airborne), Jorgenson transferred to Alpha (AKA Apache) Troop, 1st of the 9th Air Cavalry unit, where he walked point for its reaction force, the Blues. He has the singular distinction of having been shot while on a patrol that was mounted to show TV journalist Richard Threlkeld what the "real war" was like, then being interviewed by Threlkeld as he was evacuated. He is also the author of Acceptable Loss: An Infantry Soldier's Perspective and MIA Rescue: LRRPs in Cambodia.
