An autobiographical account of one US Marine Reservists tours as a Mortuary Affairs Marine. His story begins in 2002 as an everyday postal letter carrier in Springfield, Ohio when he gets the call to muster. In the next three years, his life is thrust onto the world stage as an active participant in combat. His unique experiences as an MA (Mortuary Affairs) Marine puts him and his fellow teammates directly into the path of war.
Told in first person view, hear what it was like to witness a despotic regime crumble, walk the streets of terrorist held cities on foot patrols, go on Search and Recovery missions to recover the fallen off of battlefields, and feel the sting of loss of a friend to the harsh realities of war. These are the stories that are never spoken, by a Marine who was there, to return the fallen home with honor.

As an avid reader of all things military, I was completely impressed with this book. It was written for the layman, no heavy tech talk, no abbreviations that weren’t explained fully. A touching book of what these soldiers go through to honor our fallen. Every American should read this to know how our fallen are taken care of and honored.
I personally know the author he's a good man. His story can be a little hard to get through if you've served and I've seen the sacrifices so many of our fellow service members have made but it's a story that needed to be told and needs to be listened to by all so they have a better understanding of the sacrifices the service members make everyday and some that make the ultimate sacrifice.
I enjoyed this book. True heroes honoring those that have made the ultimate sacrifice! Thank you for your service.
