No one would have guessed that Donald Neese—who grew up poor in Alabama in the 1940s and 1950s—would become an Air Force pilot, a CIA agent, and a senior executive with Lockheed Martin. But Neese always had a way of surprising folks. No one ever saw him coming, which may be why he made a great spy. He looks back at his adventure-filled life, from growing up with an abusive father and an overly religious mother to trying to live up to his valedictorian brother and then flying missions over the battlegrounds of Vietnam and beyond. Not everything turned out as planned, for instance, there was a painful divorce, but his love of country and family got him through the toughest of times. He’d also discover love again. In Poor White Trash No More, Neese looks back at an incredible life filled with surprising turns. His story will inspire you to keep chasing your dreams even during the darkest of times.
