@eric, yup, I hear ya. I was in the Coast Guard for a few years, and it's been fun to read a few books off the Coast Guard list and also off the other lists. I recently finished "Dereliction of Duty" by H. R. McMasters; there was a lot of stuff there about Vietnam that I never knew. My wife is a big David McCullough fan, so we've gotten '1776' and 'John Adams' and a couple of others... some from the library, some we bought. Definitly good stuff. I enjoyed Master and Commander, although it's been a while since I read it... probably worth a re-read.

For what it's worth, I find these lists interesting as well... I've put a small web site so that folks can track their way through the reading lists. For example, here's what I've read so far: http://militaryprofessionalreadinglists.com/users/tom I don't know... for me it's motivating to see the progress. And the books are quite enjoyable too. Some I had already read (Caine Mutiny, Cruel Sea) but others were completely new (Tin Can Sailor and many others). Good times all around.
