An excellent book any time, but especially on Memorial Day weekend! I learned more about modern American history reading this book than I did taking any American history class. The history lessons on the wars themselves, what led up to them, all the important events, we're all there in a nice concise, unbiased way. But most important, gut-wrenching, heart-touching are the first person accounts. Those are why you can't pull yourself away. I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

I won this book as a goodreads giveaway. I really enjoyed this book. The author does a wonderful job of giving the history of each war period prior to recounting the veterans' reflection of that time period. I liked the way Graser added his own personal memories to the reflections and added personal memories that the reader could connect to. I recommend this book to anyone who loves history, military history, or military families.

I was pleased to have won this book in a recent Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

Interesting stories by Veterans during several Wars, including World War 11, Vietnam, Korean and more. Now on loan to my son-in-law who has been patiently waiting to read this book when I had finished. Recommended.

I met this author at my local B&N and I immediately could tell this was a passionate writer. As a veteran he can fully understand the hardship our men and women go through to keep this country safe. I talked with him for 15-20 minutes and knew I had to have this book, I read it in under a week and couldn't put it down. Fantastic read and I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to learn more about our nations heroes. ...more
