Format: Paperback
Did you lose a loved one in battle? Did you serve in the military and lose a comrade in battle? Are you in one of the tens of thousands of families who lose loved ones to drunk drivers and unexplainable fires each year? Did you ever go to a funeral to "celebrate the life" of a classmate, who died too young? Are you or a loved one struggling with the meaning of death? Have you been wounded or maimed in battle or an accident, or know someone who has? If so, this book is for you.

Here Jan Christian, a Unitarian Universalist minister, chronicles the journey of her own grief since learning of the death of her brother, 2nd Lt. Robert M. Christian, Jr., U.S. Marine Corps, and in so doing provides a valuable template for all of us who grieve the death or severe injury of a loved one.

Our leaders and Hollywood have sanitized death and extolled heroism for far too long. They hide the costs of war. Our politicians have not allowed us to see the many flag draped caskets returning from Iraq or Afghanistan. In Hollywood, the hero fights a fierce battle, with many painless deaths around him, but ultimately wins the day and goes off to live happily ever after with the girl. But life isn't like that. The pain never dies, but Leave No Brother Behind tells us that love too is immortal.

Jan's book is filled with wisdom. She undertook her journey of grief nearly 40 years after Bob Christian, her older brother, was killed in action on April 11, 1969. She wanted to know whether any of the Marines, who served with her brother, remembered him and his sacrifice. She visited Vietnam, both the place where Bob died and present day Hanoi. She and her son met some of the men, who had battled for their homeland.

"Going back can change the way we go forward." And going along on this journey of memory and revelation changed the way I go forward. The author offers a deeply thoughtful, fearless, compassionate voice that--in telling her own story--calls us to cross boundaries of apparent differences; to remember and explore our own stories; to consider what it means to be "always faithful." Buy it. Read it.
