Review

Advance Praise for Brothers Forever

"First Lieutenant Travis Manion and Lieutenant Brendan Looney are true American heroes. Both were killed in action while I was Secretary of Defense, and I attended Brendan's funeral at Arlington National Cemetery. I was told there of Travis being re-interred next to him so that these best friends and Naval Academy roommates might spend eternity together—a bond unbroken by death. Their story is one of extraordinary courage, sacrifice, and love. It is a story of the price of freedom. All Americans should read it and understand the unimaginable debt we owe to such men, the best America has to offer."
—Robert M. Gates, Secretary of Defense under Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush

"Brothers Forever by Tom Sileo and Col. Tom Manion provides an intimate portrait of two patriots who are compelling examples of a generation of young Americans who have sacrificed in the defense of our freedoms following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001."
—Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense under Presidents George W. Bush and Gerald Ford

"Brothers Forever is the story of two warrior brothers-in-arms who are bonded forever by their love of country, their shared need to serve, their selflessness, their courage, and war. This is the story of a deep and lasting friendship that lives on in the hearts of all who knew and loved them. A deeply moving, true-to-life tale of two men, two brothers, two American heroes, who now rest with the angels, side by side at Arlington cemetery. God bless them both."
—Gary Sinise, award-winning actor and founder of the veterans-supporting Gary Sinise Foundation

"Brothers Forever is—literally—a staggering book. It drives home the price of a decade of war through the stories of a Marine and a SEAL whose memory will live forever."
—Nathaniel Fick, author of One Bullet Away

"Brothers Forever is more than the shared story of two American heroes, it encapsulates the pride, adrenaline, ethos, and anguish of the entire military community. The best way for our country to honor the sacrifices made by our fallen and their families is to never forget them. We can begin by reading this incredible book."
—Siobhan Fallon, author of You Know When the Men Are Gone

"If you want to understand the warrior spirit of an American generation, please read this powerful and unforgettable book. . . . Brothers Forever is, at heart, a testament of what it means to live a good life."
—Eric Greitens, Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author of The Heart and the Fist

"For those who might question America's character, this account of two remarkable young men will restore confidence. So long as our country breeds committed warriors like Travis Manion and Brendan Looney, we will pass down our freedoms intact to the next generation. Their story is the stuff of legends, yet for them it was very real."
—General James Mattis, USMC (Ret.), former commander of US Central Command

"Brothers Forever is an incredible story of brotherhood and heroism that every true American patriot should read. Brendan and Travis represent the very best of a generation that answered the call after 9/11. Their story captures the heart, inspires a whole new generation to serve, and stands as a testament to the unbreakable bond formed among US Armed Forces as they fight alongside each other and lay down their lives."
—Lieutenant Commander Leif Babin, US Navy SEAL and Silver Star Recipient; Instructor and Teammate of Lieutenant Brendan Looney


Publishers Weekly, 3/24/14
“This moving story is told well…and it succeeds as a testament to the courage and dedication of two young men who are now buried next to each other at Arlington National Cemetery.”

Kirkus, 4/15/14
“Inspirational narrative…Enthusiasts of military heroics should enjoy this grueling account of valor.”

Military Times (Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force Times), 4/7/14
“Their bond binds this heartfelt and loving tribute…The school years, service and sacrifice of two young men instill awe, inspire humility and introduce tears.”

Blogcritics.org, 5/13/14
“[A] heartfelt and devastating story…A powerful read…Capture[s] the pain of the family when the two soldiers lose their lives for their country…The book is a stark reminder of what the last 13 years of fighting these two wars have been about. It’s also a look at how proud are enlisted members are to serve us all.”

Roanoke Times, 5/11/14
“This is a tale of two lives, and more than two lives. It is a heart-touching story, and more than a little troubling.”

Weekly Standard, 5/19/14
“I particularly recommend the just published book, Brothers Forever. [It’s] a gripping account of friendship, war, sacrifice, and valor.”

Leatherneck Magazine, June 2014
“Their story will grip readers—even after they’ve finished the book…This well-written, well-conceived book will hit you hard in the gut.”

Examiner.com, 5/26/14
"This powerful book reinforces the belief that there are still young people out there who will put their needs aside and do what they feel is right."

Huffington News Network, 5/23/14
"A magnificent book that I couldn't finish without tears streaming down my face."

A Soldier’s Perspective, 5/23/14
"Brotherly love is a powerful thing. Even more powerful is the love of a father who refuses to let his sons’ sacrifice and legacy be forgotten. I am a better person having read Brothers Forever and I think you will be too."

Philadelphia Inquirer, 7/13/14
Brothers Forever is a tragic, yet somehow also uplifting story of two young men, two warriors, who lost their lives on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan and now lie together forever at Arlington National Cemetery.”

San Francisco Book Review, 11/10/14
Brothers Forever is a horrific yet gripping and engaging story of two American soldiers—two heroes—whose courage on the battlefield was astonishing…This memorable account truly and finely honors the bravery of the late servicemen Manion and Looney.”
