“This splendid book should be read by every American. It is a story of heroes, of sacrifice, of valor. But it is also a story of resilience, recovery, and a continuing desire to serve our country and its citizens. You must be made of stone to read this and not shed tears. But the book’s message is that, after the tears, we must not forget the sacrifices those in uniform and their families have made for all of us over the last thirteen years; we must welcome back into our communities those who served not just with thanks and open arms, but with respect, admiration, and new lives and careers worthy of all they have done for all of us.”—Robert M. Gates, author of Duty
“A truly inspirational, uplifting book, one that will fill you with pride in America’s new Greatest Generation in war and in peace.” —General David H. Petraeus, U.S. Army, Retired
