The Manchurian Candidate

This summer everything is under control.

20042 h 09 min
Overview

When his army unit was ambushed during the first Gulf War, Sergeant Raymond Shaw saved his fellow soldiers just as his commanding officer, then-Captain Ben Marco, was knocked unconscious. Brokering the incident for political capital, Shaw eventually becomes a vice-presidential nominee, while Marco is haunted by dreams of what happened -- or didn't happen -- in Kuwait. As Marco (now a Major) investigates, the story begins to unravel, to the point where he questions if it happened at all. Is it possible the entire unit was kidnapped and brainwashed to believe Shaw is a war hero as part of a plot to seize the White House? Some very powerful people at Manchurian Global corporation appear desperate to stop him from finding out.

My name is Jeremy Tinsley and I'm a Systems Engineer by trade and a father of four, two girls and two boys. I enjoy relaxing, playing games, tinkering with computers and writing this blog. I favor more of the lazy side of things, which can be a good and bad thing. The goal of this blog is to keep me inspired and accountable for improving my motivation (or lack thereof), drive, and quality of life. My hopes is that this blog will help do just that for me and for anyone else who happens to stubble upon my posts.
