Publisher's Summary

Meet Kenneth Bracewell, a veteran who does not allow failure to be an option in his life regardless of the situation or environment he is in. A Veteran's Road to College Success is a story of conviction through society and service to others. During his senior year of high school, Kenneth's counselor told him that he was not bright enough to be a soldier in the United States Army. The negative comment meant nothing for the young man, who became an infantry soldier one year after the event took place. A unique inspirational story about an army infantry soldier leaving the service and entering college after returning back from Operation Iraqi Freedom. Kenneth shares with college students, veterans, military personnel, and everyone the story of how he earned two separate undergraduate degrees (associate's and bachelor's) in three years despite the stress and constant struggle that occurred in this challenging process with the post-9/11 GI Bill and life after combat. Returning from the Iraq War as an infantry soldier was enough for this young man. Regardless of the many setbacks and failures of being unemployed, the veteran remained on his own two feet and finished strong so he could provide for his family.

Very Inspiring

I don't listen to a whole ton of audiobooks, but this one definitely caught my attention. I felt that in just less than two hours, the author was able to inspire his listeners while keeping their attention all the way through. One of the best things I got out of listening to this book is that you really can do what you want to do if you set your heart to it. Kenneth Bracewell really shows us that in his story; it is incredibly motivating and inspiring to hear his story, from serving in the US Army to succeeding in college and life despite all the challenges and setbacks that he faced. My favorite thing about this audiobook is probably the fact that the author really spoke to us like we were his friends. It was very down to earth, honest, and I really enjoyed the listen.
