GREAT story!! It really makes you respect the sacrifice the entire family makes when sending a soldier to war to fight for our freedom.

A great story showing the resiliency of the human spirit, the drive that those who serve that, even if they are injured most still want to be in. I thought the store line flowed well. It was a book that you wanted to know what happened next.

It was so interesting to me to read a book by somebody whose world view is so similar to my husband's.
