I enjoy military books. My son is in the military as was my father. This one is full of a lot of inside discussion of the valorous work our Marines did and do for us. This book does remind us that we must try to live as though we are worth of the sacrifices made for us. But it is uneven and choppy. It is the kind of book you read and then leave behind someplace you are staying or visiting for someone else to read. A diversion, but not important.
