Publisher's Summary

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.

A portion of each sale of a physical book will be donated to three separate nonprofit charities. Semperfifund.org, Eodwarriorfoundation.org, and WWIAF.org.

Exceptional read, Amazing listen, Riveting story!

This book definitely exceeded my expectations! An amazing story about a hero who sacrificed greatly for family and country. I have immense respect and admiration for GySgt Chris Bussler. This literary work of art is brutally honest, very exciting and amazingly moving .
I really enjoyed listening to this format after reading the book. The audio version helped reveal fascinating insights and facts I may have missed or that reading experience alone did not afford. The reader, John Pruden's, voice has the perfect pitch and cadence for this type of book.

Very powerful

Many times during this book brought me to an ugly cry from the pits of my very soul. It was that powerful. Nothing gory. Just poignant and factual stories of bravery and respect in such a way that most of us could never fathom.

Awesome book...Great story that will suck you in.

I thought the book was freaking awesome. The story sucks you in to the point you lose yourself in it. There were high points, there were low points, but the whole story was great. It was awesome seeing through the eyes of someone who did this job, and to know how much further he and his friends went to render respect to the fallen angels was touching. He went so far above and beyond to take care of those fallen angels in his care, that all of the armed forces adopted his methods. I am honored to know him and his story.

Excellent read!

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.

Bumpy ride

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.
