This book brings home the reality of what now appears to be at best a "questionable" war and its impact on real people. A father opens up his and his son's private lives as they experienced, each from their own perspective, service to our country in the US Army.
A compelling, heart rending book that exposes what a soldier experienced growing up, finding a call to serve, and paying the ultimate sacrifice during the course of that service.
As a father of a son about to deploy to Iraq in a Stryker Brigade from the same base as Darrell Griffin, Jr., this book helped me to understand and prepare for that seperation and begin to come to grips with the totallity of what that does and might encompase.
May God continue to bless our troops in their service and Darrel Griffin Sr. and his family in their suffering and healing associated with his son's death.
