"Gotta" is what we had years ago when we crawled through
the mud as Soldiers. That was motivation. "Wanna" is what
we learned when they stopped the military draft. After the draft
ended we crawled through the mud because we
wanted to. We learned the power of atttitude. We learned wanna. We

Heard, Understood, and Acknowledged. Itís an Army word thatís
been adapted and widely used during recent years. Hooah means such
things as "I love working in the rain, Sergeant."
"I love crawling in the mud, Sergeant," and "I love
all the hard jobs." It also says "I am a Soldier. I will
adapt, improvise, and overcome. Whatever it is I can handle it and
I will do it the very best way possible."
While on active duty during my last several years as a member of
the Alabama National Guard, I supported the Soldiers and the
families of four deployed battalions. My job was to help resolve
problems for them, to create events that would help them get
through deployment, and to organize both deployment and
home-coming ceremonies. I realized quickly that while I could
assist with paperwork problems, that where I was most helpful to
the families was when I could help to give them the emotional
strength to get through the ordeal. I quickly started using the
word "Hooah." I created events that said "we
care." I knew that what would carry them was attitude, and
lots of it!
After I retired almost three years ago other military units
started asking me for assistance. When more events began happening
I became involved with civic military support organizations and
began creating events for and with them. With every event I began
it by announcing, "The United States of America is the
greatest nation on earth, and the greatest people on earth are our
Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, and Airmen, and especially their
families here at home who also serve! And thank God for our
Then I slowly started to realize that the message I had delivered
to thousands of Soldiers and over 10,000 family members applies
equally well to everybody. I realized the message I had to give
would work as well for every individual, every corporation, and
every organization that is interested in achieving certain goals.
The Soldiers and their families merely wanted to get through a
deployment and return safely home. Other people may want a new
car, a great home life, higher education. Whatever it is, "ya
gotta have wanna." Then you have to know how to apply it.
Thatís what this book is all about.
Iíll give you the areas where you need to concentrate, the steps
to take, and the principles that will guarantee success every
time. Iíll tell you some of my own stories to demonstrate how I
used these principles. And throughout Iíll sprinkle in a little
of my dry military humor. I challenge you to take these principles
and enjoy, learn, and be a success in your own life.
Thank you for taking your precious time to read this book.

The legend of David Carney, told by many, but
believed by few!
In some countries he is known as the
Border Phantom for his
cunning ability to cross unfriendly borders at will, always with his
trusty cell-phone enabled notebook computer. When asked why, he
exclaimed, "I've got to stay in touch. When you're on the Internet it
doesn't matter if you're riding through the Sahara on a camel,
crossing the Himalayas on an elephant, or crawling under barbed wire
in the dead (poor choice
of words) of night."
In other countries he is counselor to
Kings, Prime Ministers, and other heads of state. He believes
extensive travel and knowledge of other cultures is the key to
bringing the world together in harmony. "The internet is a stepping
stone to the world," Carney says.
As a National Guard member he has been
privileged to travel around the world and see it from many points of
view. The last time he saw Vienna, Austria was while driving a
National Guard HumVee.
He has back-packed,
camped, and jetsetted his way throughout the castles of Europe,
mosques of Kuwait, and Buddhist Temples of Thailand. His six years of
living in Europe gives him many unique inside experiences.
Many people take the
Legend of the Border
Phantom with a grain of salt and
a smile. Perhaps you should also. Although we have been told that the
Emir of Sultania, who often stops by for tea, believes it to be
an entertaining and intriguing mixture of fact and
Carney is one of those few
Americans who are at home in a Russian MiG 21. He prefers not to give a
straight answer about the reason why.
"I simply enjoy all facets of
travel, but especially the historical parts. I'm one of those rare people
who think calendar dates actually matter. Beyond that, I take nothing too
serious because I've traveled totally around the world - in one year -
seen, and experienced a lot.
I've seen many
people who were grateful for a crust of bread. I've also seen most of the
tourist attractions around the world. My philosophy is - Life is Made To
Be Enjoyed. Travel and Enjoy!!"

of writing historic novels and short stories. We enjoy traveling around
the world regularly. We have taken many trips together and have quite an
extensive agenda lined up. Judith's writing ability allows her to see the
