The class of 2002 was the first service academy class to graduate during wartime since Vietnam, so it is appropriate that the book launched nationally yesterday on the anniversary of 9-11.
The book is a collection of the personal testimonials and experiences his class has had fighting in the war on terrorism, and forms a narrative about leadership, service, and sacrifice that will resonate far beyond a military audience. It’s a great look inside an American service academy, and all that these young men and women had to sacrifice to become members of this elite group.
The book has gotten great reviews, including one from Tom Brokaw in which he characterizes it as “A must read for all Americans.” If you’re interested in learning more about the project here are two short videos that take you behind the scenes: Watch here and and here.
The best part…all the proceeds from the book go to benefit veteran’s charities.
If you are in the San Diego area, my husband will be doing a speaking and signing event at Bay Books in Coronado tonight, September 12th at 6pm. He’ll be at Warwick’s in La Jolla on October 2nd, and if you are up in the Bay Area, he’ll be in Palo Alto at Books Inc. at 7pm on October 8th. We’d love to see you there!
More information about the book tour and event times can be found here. You can also find out more here, on the book’s Facebook page.
And if you are so inclined, and would like to have your own copy but can’t make it to one of the signings, you can purchase here or here or purchase your Kindle edition here.
I’m pretty proud of my hubby and all his classmates both whose stories are told in the book and those who have served and continue to serve our nation and protect our freedom.
