Overview
This is an autobiography of a man with simple beginnings who volunteered for the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War and fought for our country's freedom. From a small community in St. Louis to the jungle of Vietnam under extreme circumstances, Harry's personal experiences begin with the relationships he built with his Marine "brothers" to the gut wrenching, terrifying battles of combat. This foundation paved the way for his performance during his many assignments at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department over a 38 year period. Whether it was District work or that of a specialized unit such as Crimes Against Persons, Internal Affairs, Intelligence Unit, etc., some of the cases that Harry worked and solved are detailed here. Beyond the strong relationships he developed with his coworkers are those relationships he walked away from because of the consequences he would not accept. No one could sway Harry from the values he held dearly and it was those values that ultimately spurred the reputation Harry earned over a stunning career.

About the author
Harry Hegger retired from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department after 38 years of service and countless job assignments. His reputation precedes him by those he knows well and those he has never met. The shear number of cases he worked, the complexity of the cases and the seriousness of the crimes combined with the quality of his work has put him in legend status inside the department. Those accomplishments were possible only because of Harry's experience in the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam war. As a Marine Grunt, Harry was on the front lines with those men he called "brothers". Some lived, some died, but none remained the same. Those harrowing experiences are detailed in this writing and lay the foundation for the character and humility Harry displays during his time on the Police Department. Often called "a man's man", Harry's genuineness shows through in every decision he made. His writings are real and raw.
