"The story of two decorated combat veterans linked by tragedy, who came home from the Middle East and found a new way to save their comrades and heal their country. This is one of the most hopeful stories to emerge from Iraq and Afghanistan--a saga of lives saved, not wasted. Greitens and Wood believe that the military virtues of discipline and selflessness, of sacrifice for the greater good, can save lives--and not just the lives of their fellow veterans. They believe that invigorated veterans can lead, by personal example, to stronger communities--and they prove it in Charlie Mike. Their personal saga is compelling and inspirational: Greitens and Wood demonstrate how the skills of war can also provide a path to peace, personal satisfaction, and a more vigorous nation"-- Provided by publisher.
