This book tells it like it really is from an inside point of view. It also gives more insight into the exchanges that go on with family and friends back home. I highly recommend this book!

CPT Diggs Brown has done a great service to our nation, both as an individual serving his country and as an author sharing the 'good news' of success in the war on terrorism. This is especially important when most of the print and television media are presenting only the casualty lists. In July 2002, his unit was informed to prepare for deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Diggs shares what it was like to leave all the 'comforts of home,' leave his successful civilian job for an entire year, and switch from 'weekend warrior' to full-time soldier in a combat zone as a Special Forces officer in the Army National Guard. He tells his story by sharing the many EMAILs and letter back and forth. He describes his many activities, while the main unit is working to train the New Afghan National Army, CPT Diggs and his fellow soldiers,and the unit chaplain, and the unit medics, all are also working equally hard to help the children and families living around the bases where they are stationed, teaching English, repairing schools, providing basic medical care to surrounding villages, giving aid to orphanages, etc. His activities are in keeping with traditional Special Forces values, attempting to 'win the hearts and minds' of the Afghan people he is helping to liberate. CPT Diggs is an excellent example of the Special Forces Latin motto....'de opresso liber', or 'To liberate the oppressed.'
