Michael T. Gregory graduated from the
State University College at Cortland in 1980, he had considered becoming
a coach or teacher. But a good Oneonta Army recruiter and the
opportunity to fly helicopters convinced him to join the Army.
For over two decades he has served his country in numerous capacities.
His duty stations included Ansbach, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and
Kuwait, as well as stateside assignments in Rucker, Hood, Knox, and
Kelly AFB, including a six-month stint as a company commander in the
Persian Gulf War, where he led 36 men and oversaw several night bombing
missions. A firm believer in the spirit of the Cavalry, Mike Gregory's
love of military history has ensured the Troopers he served with his
unequivocal loyalty, honesty, and trust. He finished his military career
as an Information Operations analyst working global activities.
Mike is now a retired U. S. Army officer with three novels under his
belt. His first book, Desert Skies, (1999) is a historical
fiction account of company command in the first Gulf War. "It's loosely
based on what I went through." He does hope the book will function as an
educational tool, helping "people understand a little bit more than what
they got from CNN."
His second book, Hoopman (2003) is a fictitious account of an
“older” military retiree, Chuck “Hoopman” Hayes, a retired Army Officer
getting a chance to play college basketball. It doesn’t take Hoopman
long to figure out his team is hiding a dark secret. But Chuck Hayes has
the courage to take on the criminals that threaten his teammates and his
dreams. Even if it costs him his life.
Desert Skies II: A Story of "Warriors" in
Operation Iraqi Freedom is Mike's third book. This is the continuing
saga of Tom Lawton, now fighting in the new Iraqi war.
Originally from upstate New York, Mike is one of the many that has "seen
the light"; he and his family (a wife and three daughters) call Boerne,
Texas home now. He spends most of his off time traveling around Texas,
giving book signings, or working on his jump shot.
