It began as a personal memoir for her son.
It became the first book to define post 9/11 service and leadership.
I could not put this book down. The ‘frontline generation’ is the reason I agreed to serve in 2006 and stayed on in 2009. As I told the men and women that I visited at COPs and FOBs, I came to regard them as though they were my own sons and daughters. The most gratifying single thing to me from my service was learning how many felt I actually had their back—that I truly cared about them as individuals, and made decisions accordingly. I did. Marjorie’s similar caring about her troops comes through on every page.
