Abstract:
Chipped Beef on Toast is a collection of mostly humorous stories about life in the military. While some are based on the author’s adventures, most are the result of interviews with veterans. This is a work of fiction. Veterans will, however, recognize as real or possible the many crazy things that can happen. The story of Stone Bear is different. While it may offend many Japanese, it deals with issues that need to be remembered.

  Truly a Treasure , 03/01/2006
Reviewer: Cathy Yanda
"Chipped Beef On Toast" is a delightfully funny book which honors veterans with a trip down memory lane through short stories. My favorite (at least today) is "Corporal Higgins". I found the adventures of Corporal Higgins to be absolutely hilarious, while knowing that Cpl. Higgins is a real individual who served this country made it even more so. The story of Cpl. Higgins begins with him believing his has one of the best assignments any soldier can have, a clerk typist and assistant Company clerk. The adventures Cpl. Higgins ends up in are incredibly well told and in the end you will discover the laughs you have shared will have turned into lessons learned. There is a twist at the end everyone will appreciate. This is a book for every veteran, as well as anyone who knows a veteran, will want to read. The laughs will keep you reading and shaking your head. I can't wait to read another book Charles H. Bertram has to offer. May my veteran friends, I having served eight years in the U.S. Marine Corps (once a Marine, always a Marine), are eternally grateful to you, Mr. Bertam, for helping us to laugh and making us remember. Semper fi!

  Somebody Ought to Write a Book about this Stuff , 03/02/2006
Reviewer: Captain Ed Owen
If you are military or ex-military, you have had the great joy of frantically hurrying up in order to wait forever. And while you were waiting, more often than not someone (probably more than one) told some wild stories. Many times these stories were so down right hilarious that, by the time you moved on to the next extremely important military event, your sides were aching from laughter. After some of these eye-wateringly funny bull sessions, it was suggested that someone ought to write a book about this stuff. Well, Charles Bertram has done just that, and he has done it extraordinarily well. Whether you are a squid, jarhead, zoomy, grunt, or whatever, you need to get a copy of this great little collection and prepare to enjoy and laugh. If you are still on active duty, you’ll feel like it’s an insightful, hilarious, commentary on your everyday life. If you are now playing the civilian game, it will bring back fond memories.
