I’m ordering this book, Back in Action by David Rozelle. He is going back to lead men again in Iraq after having lost his foot in action a few years ago.

Today the military knows a good man when it sees one. Back in 1994 when my husband was in Somalia his XO’s son, a yearling at West Point was in a terrible car accident while returning home to West Point from Spring Break and he lost his arm. He was an excellent cadet and West Point let him stay long enough to finish out the year while he was recovering at Walter Reed. We were all so disappointed when he had to leave because he loved West Point and before the accident had such great hopes. He was instrumental in encouraging my son to go to West Point and had the military been a little smarter they could have kept a great leader in their ranks.

The young man finished school at Notre Dame and also took up golf!
