Editorial Reviews

Review

"Written with extraordinary insight into the complexities of both modern warfare and the hearts and minds of those who fight them, Matt Cricchio's Security Day is worthy addition to the literature of our seemingly never ending wars. I urge you to read it." - Kevin Powers, Author of THE YELLOW BIRDS

From the Author

I wasn't an operator. Or a shooter, or a soldier, or an infantryman. Not a grunt. My job was to meet and talk to people—sometimes under adverse conditions—and build rapport. Rapport was drilled into us during training, even for interrogations.

A good interrogation isn't based on power, or fear, or "torture." At the core it's about connection and—though some would call this "falling in love with your source"—empathy.

Because I wasn't doing the shooting part of war, I truly got to know Afghans and the way they viewed the world. I felt an affinity with their ancient values: love your family, honor the elders, protect our village against all comers. An encounter with reality that stark and clear alters your life. If war can make anyone a better person, then I am a better person for knowing them.

Security Day is dedicated to the Afghans who, whatever their reasons, helped us.
