In 2007 and 2008, Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter David Finkel traveled with 800 U.S. Army soldiers during the Iraqi Surge. That immersion became the basis for his The Good Soldier, described by the New York Times as "ferociously reported, darkly humorous and spellbinding book." In this book, he picks up the story, not only of the now deactivated members of the battalion he covered, but also of other returning battle-scarred GIs and their families. Like its deeply ironic title, Thank You for Your Service accents the disparity between the life-endangering combat commitment of these brave men and women and their intense difficulties reintegrating into "normal" American life. One of the most powerful books of 2013.
