I found "An American Journey" by Jerry Coleman to be an excellent book and inspirational story. The story of a great and dedicated American. I have enjoyed listening to Jerry Coleman do San Diego Padres baseball games for many years, but was not aware of the military contributions he made to our country's freedom. A true American hero.
