After digesting the first letters, I knew I was reading about an ace among the elite, and his death angered me. I must trust God's plan, but I see Captain Argel's death as an unconscionable loss of a national asset. If you read this book, you'll agree with me that you wished you had known him, and you'll feel cheated if you didn't.
Picture a powerful six and a half foot tall dynamo with a will of steel, a heart of gold, and a lifetime of wisdom. Picture him making leadership look easy among the nation's top officer candidates at the United States Air Force Academy, picture him exemplifying resiliency and strength among the nation's elite special forces, and picture him pouring love and compassion upon friends and family.
If you're perplexed and enticed by these apparent contrasting images, you'll want to pick up Letters for Logan and get to know Captain Derek Argel. Reading his memoirs may sadden you or anger you, but it will ignite a spark in you to be a better version of you.
