Colonel RAYmond Sleeper
Col. Sleeper, of Herndon, was born in Laconia, N.H. He graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1940. During World War II, he was a bomber pilot in the Pacific.
After the war, he received a master's degree in social psychology at Harvard, attended the Air War College, then served on its faculty. Later, he served in Texas, Hawaii and at Andrews Air Force Base, where he specialized in the acquisition and analysis of foreign technology.
On retiring from the Air Force, Col. Sleeper settled in the Washington area. While living in the area, he taught cybernetics at the Space Institute of the University of Tennessee and lectured at the Freedom Study Center in Boston, Va. He also helped establish the Air Victory Museum in Medford, N.J.
"I bought this book as a junior NCO at Templehof Central Airport, West Berlin in the 80's. The defintions are the very words of Marxist leaders and luminaries of various sorts. These same things could be heard, in various forms, ad nauseum on East German television and radio. Col. Sleeper compiled a thorough list of communist buzzwords and phrases and what they actually mean, a one-stop shop of sorts. It's also useful for decoding some of the stuff spoken by our own political leaders, who themselves may not be aware of where what they're saying actually came from. It's an excellent reference text; as accurate and relevant today as when it was compiled."
Admiral Radford pushes to WH.
Completion overlaps with August China study....culminating in December rejection....
