Honest is on the air BUMP!
Thank you ups.
It was grand.
I’m reading this book right now and my mouth is hanging open. What an exceptional piece of writing. Absolutely lacking in documenting the “I’m a hero and did this” type of writing that is often common in first person combat books. Any person interested in understanding OIF from a soldier’s point of view needs to learn about Fallujah which this book covers.
