Limited Duty


Limited Duty is a uniquely compelling and inspiring memoir of a soldiers life leading up to and through WWII. His personal triumph of overcoming a severe physical disability as a child, to eventually changing others perception of him and his handicap, and proving himself worthy of serving his country. As a soldier from the north he witnessed first hand the racial tension between the whites and those blacks he befriended. His surviving a botched appendectomy, operating a lucrative gambling enterprise on base, dancing with Judy Garland at the Hollywood Canteen, experiencing the initial test of the atomic bomb to his discharge from the military in January 1946. These are just some of the historical events that provided a fascinating, and often times humorous look into his military career of a stateside soldier.Limited Duty is a stateside soldiers version of Beyond Band of Brothers - The Memoirs of Major Dick Winters. It offers an interesting perspective on military life of stateside soldiers who trained and prepared others for combat. It details Corporal Furlipa's extreme measures in an attempt to receive combat eligibility during his military career. Limited duty also provides rare personal glimpses into historical events (unreported hurricane that hit the Texas coast, Beaumont riots, Boxer Joe Louis and his Brown Bomber Softball team, dancing with Judy Garland at the Hollywood Canteen, and Trinity Nuclear Bomb Test) experienced by Corporal Ted Furlipa.

Latest Poem


Things that make you

Stop and smile

Focus and pause

A little while

What captures your eye

And makes you look

What grabs your soul

And sets the hook

Passions we have

We can’t ignore

To what we’re driven

We must explore

Chef in the kitchen

Begins to cook

Feels like the bishop

That got the rook

A builder steps back

Admires the house

Proud as a cat

That caught the mouse

The musician plays

And performs the song

To which the crowds

Sing along

We all have gifts

It’s only fair

They benefit others

And we must share

Some are inherent

Others unique

Most take work

To hone technique

We live our lives

The way we must

It’s vital our compass

Collects no dust
