As a combat veteran who is far from most of his Army buddies, this was the perfect way for him to relate and reflect in a way that only few veterans can. The author's romance with his now wife was strikingly like ours during the six years we dated while he was all over the world.
This book as a solid balance of a pure love story and a gritty recollection of wartime moments. We read it together and realized how amazing and unique our community is.
For people who are unfamiliar with Army terms and rules, the author breaks it down pretty well without taking away from the story.
I want to thank the author for sharing his story and inspiring my husband through a transition time into the civilian world. I want to thank the author's wife for being a prime example of a steadfast partner. I want to thank all of our military personnel and their families for being the reason why we fight, succeed and carry on.
A very readable and engaging first-hand account of triumph and tragedy, military humor, camraderie (something that's indescribable to someone who'snever served in the military or any other high-risk profession), international combat action & adventure, triumph, tragic loss, and true love lost and then re-gained for good. SSG Lewis also has some insightful observations on the places he's been, such as the state of poverty and corruption in Africa, and the short-sightedness and political stupidity of the senior officers running the show in Afghanistan (for example,the Group Commander who arbitrarily order Robert's team to cut their long hairs & beards,when they'd already been authorized "modified grooming standards" in order to blend in better with the local populace and gain credibility with said populace).
Best of all, part of the proceeds from the sale of the book go toward a worthy cause, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
I was really interested in learning about how Rob dealt with war and his love life. The story he tells is motivational and seems down to earth.
Recommend it to aspiring Green Berets or loved ones who want to understand what their family/significant others are going through.
I especially appreciate the life-saving choice he made for himself toward the end (I don't want to give it away). j
AND - VERY IMPORTANT - Anybody who is considering voting for Hillary in 2016 needs to read this book (actually, just the last few chapters).
