    This is an awesome book!

    B&N, you should really feature this book!! Esp. for Father's Day and July 4! Just picked it up today at your store on 5th Ave in NYC (while Hillary was there, ironically) and already read 2/3 of the stories. Its great! Gives an up close and personal appreciation of military people ... the stories they tell are inspiring and some just incredible. Please, please, B&N, push this book! Everyone should read it to appreciate what the miltary does for us.
