THANK YOU for serving Matt and for being brave and dedicated enough to write this book.
Suzanne Murphy
I am sad that so many young men like Matt, full of life, energy, and patriotism, come back finding it very difficult to separate themselves from the war.
T. Hunt
I am reading this to get a feel for the Afghanistan that my son is currently deployed to.

Matt takes us through his deployment with skill and knowledge, yet never loses his sense of compassion and often flavors it with wit and sarcasm. Colorful episodes of an obviously life changing time in his life told as I've never heard a soldier's tale told before. As our politicians seem to be sweeping this war under their campaign carpets, Matt reminds us of the sacrifices that thousands of our brave men and women have faced over the past 11 years and opens up a closer look at what they often face once they return home.

Format: Paperback
Zeller does an excellent job of detailing from start to finish, top to bottom, exciting to mundane, what its like to do a tour as an embedded trainer with Afghan Security Forces. He captures the thrill, terror, boredome, confusion, bonding and bickering that goes on when men go to war, let alone men from two different cultures and countries united in the cauldron that is Afghanistan.

I have to preface this review by stating that I am a former colleague of the author. We served in the Headquarters of the same National Guard brigade in New York State. I had only recently returned from a deployment to Iraq as a Civil Affairs Officer. When I met him, Matt was a junior Military Intelligence Officer, extremely motivated and professional. He picked my brain about my Iraq experience and the people; I willingly obliged as no one else seemed interested. They were too busy "planning". I remember thinking: "If any of the other junior officers are as professional, willing to learn, and able to think 'outside the box', we may just win this new kind of war." Hell, Matt doesn't even remember what the box looks like..

As I read the first chapters, my mind kept going back to my pre-deployment for Iraq. I was eager and naive (in the sense that I couldn't possibly know what to expect). This is the state of mind we find Zeller and his fellow soldiers, knowing that, even after they completed their grueling, mind-numbing training, there was still the specter of Afghanistan looming on the horizon. At the beginnings of the chapters, there are black and white photos of Matt and his teammates, many of whom were friends and associates I'd helped train before my retirement. I couldn't help feel for them, knowing that they would never be the same within a year.

Matt soon finds himself in harm's way, pinned down by enemy fire; he's scared, but he's more scared that he will let down his comrades than get shot. Once again, I can identify with this. I recognize the stages that my troops and I went through 5 years before, in a different sandbox.
