Private Matt Duffy is 18 and fighting the war in Iraq. He wakes up in a hospital unsure of what really happened to him. The doctors diagnos him with TBI - Traumatic Brain Injury. He has flashbacks of a dark alley and a small boy getting shot. Duffy is awarded the Purple Heart, but he still isn't sure he deserves it. Duffy eventually rejoins his troop and the daily life of war. This book gives the reader a little understanding of what our troops are going through in this current war.
