Knowing what I know about what my son has so far experienced in Afghanistan as a member of the 173rd and an infantry soldier, this book, to me, is universal in it's depiction of what infantry soldiers are experiencing. I could put my son and his "brothers' in your book, I have heard very similar stories and sentiments from them (the majority of them on their first deployment). You gave me a more complete picture and understanding of what these months have been like for my son and his "brothers". I thank you for that.
Congratulations on Making the NYT Best Seller List, but you have done so much more than that, you have put into words what our sons or we may never have been able to do. It is so well written. Thank you again.
Dear Alicia -
Thank you very much for what you said...I'm glad my book connected with your experience. And best of luck to your son.
