Real troop support

by got2mojos on Jan 15, 2008

The soldiers in this book show us what real "troop support" looks like. It's what they give each other: a willingness to share in the experience of the unimaginable. As hard as it is to sit through the telling of these stories, you feel a sense of obligation to do so. To listen with some hope of understanding. To put aside your politics for the sake of the real person in front of you. This book is a practice workout for the kind of support your soldier will need when s/he comes home. And a searing, multisensory image that you can't help but hold in your thoughts and prayers while they are away.
