He lost his life during his third tour of duty at the age of 21. Shortly thereafter I received my son's journal which did not contain his private thoughts, but words of wisdom from Holton's book copied verbatim. I then had the good fortune of meeting Holton in person ten months later at a memorial event for Special Operations soldiers who had lost their lives during the previous year. Imagine my surprise when Holton shared with me that he knew my sons story and knew it well. He told me he admired him and was including him in an upcoming book, American Heroes in Special Operations. It was an emotional meeting and I found myself in complete awe! Here I was standing face to face with a man my son deeply respected and admired and he tells me he shares the same sentiment about my son.
When I got word that Making Men was close to it's release date, I made sure to get on the list for the early sale notice. I was very excited to read another one of Holtons books. When it arrived in my mailbox I immediately sat down and began to read it. I devoured this book in two sittings and then re-read it again. I was blown away. I shouldn't have been. It didn't contain anything that was surprising to me or any great revelations. You see, I raised my son as a single mother and I was delighted to read the very principles I raised my son with written in the pages before my eyes. It was no wonder my son was so taken by Holton's writings from the very first word he read. The principles and scriptures Holton outlines validated that I raised him right and also helped to shape him in to the man he would become. I am not claiming that I knew something more before Holton put his pen to paper, only that when you use "the timeless truths and wisdom and experience of mature men" to raise your boys, they will turn in to the "real men" that Holton describes. This book is absolutely NOT just for men to read, it is a MUST READ for single mothers as well. It worked for me and my son's story has now made it into two of Holton's books.
I remain in close contact with several of my sons brothers in arms. I keep copies of A More Elite Soldier, Bulletproof and now Making Men to share with them whenever I get the chance. Every young man needs to read this book, apply to his own life and hold on to it until he becomes a father himself. I know first hand that every scripture, every principle and every ounce of wisdom that Holton cites turns boys into the men we are in such short supply of in todays world. I highly recommend this book. Read it once and then read it again. Memorize it, please. For the future of all men and women, please.
I am still completely astounded by its complete applicability to my life. Making Men is the most motivating book I have read. It was clear and accurate instruction that isn't just for father raising boys. It's not about raising boys. It's about being a leader and that leadership will raise men and even women.
If you are looking for encouragement, guidance, affirmation, conviction, proper instruction.... Whether you have kids, wants kids, don't want kids, interact with them or even just interact with other adults....
Making Men is the book for Anybody.
It's worth reading, and re-reading.
