Ths chapters are brief - enough to get a sense of a human being in turmoil, an incident, a resolution - some happy, some tragic. The number and variety of them is what gets to you after awhile - male, female, enlisted, officer, cadet; most currently serving, a few discharged; most gay and lesbian, one straight; but what you come away with is a profound respect for the courage it took to put your life in the service of your country despite the extraordinary burden of closing off your personal life entirely.
Everyone in uniform, and everyone who cares about our military, should read this book.
This book is timely, honest, tear-jerking, but leaves the reader feeling on top of the world. The stories are short, which makes the pages fly by and your emotions reel. A MUST READ for anyone who is interested in the more human side of military service.
Not sure where the profits of the book are going, although the author promised to donate them.
