Port Orange, FL, November 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- A fatherless young boy’s true education on the streets of South Brooklyn in the 1950s and ’60s brings a surprising result: a successful career as a federal special agent with the Department of Defense. The author’s early life makes him an unlikely candidate for a job in law enforcement, as stealing a car, running numbers and getting kicked out of Catholic school were just a few of his dubious accomplishments. But this high school dropout’s street experience also gave him the ability to read people and anticipate what they might do. His determination helps him complete a degree in police administration and a bachelor’s degree in business, a requirement for the Criminal Investigation Division, as well as completing hundreds of hours of specialty training. His military career – starting as a mechanic, then becoming a military police officer – also builds his character.
The True Adventures of a Vagabond, published by Dog Ear Publishing, provides an insider’s view of the highest levels of government and intelligence information. SA DePasquale, who became one of the highest decorated special agents within his field, worked on hundreds of criminal investigations that went on to be prosecuted in court. He participated in major drug arrests and investigations involving the U.S. government, including the South American drug trade and the capture of Manuel Noriega. The books offers a fascinating look at the work involved in narcotics cases in Europe, Asia and Latin America, as well as the temptations agents face. It also delves into the world of criminal investigation. And the author continues his adventures even after retirement, sailing on his 46-foot Marina Ketch from Washington to Mexico then to Florida.
