Deployed Flight and Sometimes Eternity is released in paperback and e-book in January 2021. A totally revised second edition with new poems and numerous photographs of military aircraft, Deployed Flight and Sometimes Eternity poetically recounts the adventurous career of a military aviator who flew across the hemispheres spanning 30-years of service; life, love, combat, patriotism, and intense comradeship weaves this anthem about what it meant to serve. From the famine-ridden deserts of Somalia to the war torn tenements of Bosnia and Herzegovina, to the ice caps of the polar regions and more, the planet-scape inspired Colonel Ronnie Smith to write from the heart. And herein he shares the poignant, the humor, the elegance, the tragic, and the sacredness of the human experience in uniform.
