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
good story about combat/army life. recommended for those who have the desire to serve our country. an eye opener inside look at the sacrifices made daily by our men and women. no bs just reality of being a service member. hooah.
This was a great account of what our service men and women go through in combat. It tells the story of why they fight, and that is for country but more so for their comrades in combat, fighting right next to them.
I felt the whole gamut of emotions...fear, surprise, humor, tears. The most unforgettable book I have ever read. Bravo Lt Parnell.
I feel all Americans should listen to this book to get a sense of what are military men and women do to keep us free. I cried, I laughed, but most of all I learned what these men and women are made of, honor, trust, strength, respect, determination and love. My father was in Vietnam. I don't know what he went thru but I can imagine it was hard. All of these men deserve the highest degree of respect! Thank you for your service! ❤
Raw and riveting. Recommend this book to be required reading for all senior high school students for both males and females.
