A must read for anyone who wants to understand what experiences of war are really like.
A must read for any teenagers who are struggling with discovering who they really are.
The writing is easy to follow, does not get lost in deep philosophical or strategic questions and hits home no matter who the reader may be. It is a Marine's story told as only a Marine could tell it. Written in an easy to follow manner it is eye opening in its candor and hits the mark in describing what war was really like for this Marine, and how he grew from the experience in so many different ways. Well worth the read.
I found the book to be a vivid whirlwind of an adventure, a spiritual awakening, and I prayed and thanked God that Seth made it home alive.

I also can honestly say that the book reads like a 136 page version of our deployment. When you read that there was a long gap in the journal entries, that is the times where nothing of note happened and it was just the boredom and grind that is war. The name says it all "Boredom by Day, Death by Night."
My closure did not come as quick, nor did my forgiveness come as easy as his. This book helped me work through many of the issues that I still had. I feel like knowing that others felt the same way as I did really helped me get through the issues in my own mind. Thank you Seth, for helping me gain the closure that had been so elusive.
As a mother, I must say that it did me good to read that it is not a constant battle going on over there as the media portrays it to be, because I have to admit I am really scared for my son. I just pray that he has leadership like you when he gets there...men of God...men with integrity, pride and love in their hearts. Men of character. Because these days, men like those...men like you, are few and far between.
