My New book: The Old Jarhead's Journal

The Old Jarhead's Journal: Random Thoughts on Life, Liberty, and Leadership by Robert A. Hall
The Old Jarhead’s Journal is a collection of Random Thoughts on politics and life and Conservative Political Essays, mostly published on the author’s blog, including the essay “I’m Tired” which went viral on the Internet in 2009, “The Hall Platform,” “This I Believe,” and “Why I’m a Republican.” While they will be of interest to conservative thinkers, they are collected here in book form as a service to readers who wish to give a copy to a favorite liberal and watch his or her head explode. All royalties are donated to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. Former Staff Sergeant Robert A. Hall served from 1964 to 1968 in the US Marine Corps, including what he calls “an easy tour” in Vietnam. He later served another six years in the Marine Reserves. In 1972, he graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in government and was elected that November to the first of five terms in the Massachusetts state senate, earning an MEd in history at night from Fitchburg State University while a senator. In 1976, he was nominated by both parties. He retired undefeated to become a successful association executive in 1982, a profession he is being forced to retire from in 2013, due to advancing Pulmonary Fibrosis. He has published hundreds of articles, opinion columns, short stories and poems, plus several books, including The Coming Collapse of the American Republic, C.Y.A. – Protecting Yourself in the Modern Jungle, Advice for my Granddaughter, and Old Jarhead Poems, which received the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation’s Robert A. Gannon writing award for poetry in 2012. Royalties from these books go to charity.
