This book illuminates the fact that this country STILL produces great YOUNG citizens and warriors, despite not being considered the Greatest generation, etc. From my foxhole, this young leader and his Soldiers ARE the best generation, because what they are doing is relevant. My only complaint is that non-infantry Soldiers were characterized as lazy and unexposed to regular danger. Perhaps this is true, to some extent, but I know more than a few non combat arms soldiers what have been seriously injured or killed in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Unfortunately, the taliban has little sympathy for anyone wearing an American flag; moreover, when they are killed, they are just as dead as our infantry, armor, and artillery brothers

Thank you for sharing the honest truth of your sacrifice and commitment to our country and to each other. Our prayers for healing and protection are with you. Thank you for your service!
The story is very real and gives the reader a glimpse at modern warfare. The storyline is both descrptive and exciting, leaving the reader wondering how they are going to get out of the next situation alive. Well read as the narrator uses different voices for each person.
The narrator did such a great job. Excellent writing. Gripping story. This purchase will not be a waste of time or money. Learn about and honor the men who became heroes, what they gave and lost, and remember to live life in a manner worthy of their sacrifice.
Extremely well written and well told book! I don't know if its because its not a book about a bunch of elitist special ops guys, or just the way the story is told, but this book seems very real and very good.
I've read so many special forces stories that I started to forget about the rest of fighting forces. This book reminded me that plenty of other solders need their stories told and listen to. Thanks for sharing. This book is as good as they get. Again thanks for sharing.
