    I actually wrote a book about my combat marine experience during Operation Iraqi Freedom. It starts off with me surfing in Deal, NJ on September 11th. After realizing the smoke pouring down the coastline was from the terrorist attacks, I decided to go fight for our freedom. Its called The Song Each Bullet Sings and is available on Amazon. If you want to know why today's veterans and military are having such a tough time with PTSD and suicide, my story takes you with me into the war in Iraq. If you get it and enjoy it, please spread the word. Thanks

    Anyone for some science fiction? You should check out the "Spin" trilogy my Robert Charles Wilson, or anything by Arthur C. Clarke. The "Rama" series in particular.

    Thanks man. I have been blessed with really good reviews and I have gotten great feedback from dudes in and out of unit saying, "my family understands me a little better now." Ultimate compliment. And with people spreading the word, hopefully we will get the attention of a bigger distributor, to get the book in all book stores, and help veterans of all generations.

    don't know if it has been said yet but The Wave, by Susan Casey is a very good book not only about big wave surfing but the big waves themselves.

    In Search Of Captain Zero... Cosmic Banditos... Can't You Get Along With Anyone? are all great books by A.C. Wiesbecker.

    I also really like Into The Wild, On The Road and Catcher In The Rye...

    All very similar books. Social deviants/misfits. Looking for their place in life, judging others (sometimes harshly), all in 1st person narrative form. Having some sort of "adventure" in them.
