J.A. Bowden, The Army Years 

I dug a little more and found this paper written by Mr. Bowden while he was still Major Bowden. It's from 1985, and is a historical look at the U.S. Army's reorganization of 1973. For some reason he finds it necessary to point out that the Petronius Arbiter, author of a quote that was widely popular among Army officers during periods of reorganizations, was actually "the chronicler of the pornographic carryings on of the court of the Emperorer Nero."

No further explanation given for why he found this relevant or important to this paper. But certainly a taste of things to come.
