Memorial Day - by Sebastian Junger (from

This post from Sebastian is from originally from 

I did not grow up in a military family and when I was young, I did not

understand about soldiers coming home from wars — or failing to. I only

knew one family with a father who had fought in World War Two, and I

remember watching in fascination as he dug out his back yard and built

a hardened bunker out of concrete. This was in the late…

Hi Clay, thanks! I added this website to Sebastian's page. I also posted the Restrepo video. There is a place to put his blog posts too, but there isn't anything posted yet, so it didn't make sense to do so. In addition, I added WAR to the Best Books of 2010 list and to the Best Non-Fiction War Books list. has over 2.4 million members! I want to see Sebastian's fan base rise to thousands and see WAR listed on thousands of to-read/read lists too! Everything else listed on his page was put on by someone else. Take a look: All the best, Liza
