I definitely had a few tears come down but it’s not overall a sad book. It makes you appreciate what our men and women fight for and made me realize even more that most of the people of Afghanistan want to live in peace to raise their families and earn money without it being stolen from the taliban. And that’s what these marines were trying to give back to the villagers...a sense of normalcy again and it was nice to hear first hand accounts that many of the villagers were grateful to them for helping to drive out their suppressors. And then the whole story of Fred, the Afghani dog, that is part of the whole’s actually really remarkable! Loved this book. Couldn't put it down and read it all in less than 24 hours!

Curious because I love dogs, I started this incredible story. I now have a better understanding of the hell our marines went through & a much deeper respect and appreciation for all they’ve done. And I’m just flat out in love with Fred!

As a mother of a marine that was deployed to Afghanistan it truly helped me to understand what our servicemen and women go through. Craig and Fred is a must read.

After serving in Vietnam and after 28 years in Our Corps (USMC) can identify with many of Craig & Fred’s emotions. Semper Fi Marine.
