He survived all this, but some in his company did not, and he shared the emotions he felt when the close-knit company lost one of its own. His platoon's missions to clear the roads around Fallujah of IEDs and to engage enemy insurgents were described in enough detail to be downright scary, with the Marines never knowing when an IED, an RPG or mortar shell, or a bullet had their number.
Despite the dangerous missions and the hellish conditions, there were some humorous situations, including one Marine entrepreneur's sideline of selling pills to the other men. And it's not what you think - there were no illegal drugs or alcohol allowed in Camp Baharia.
I'm thankful for men like Bob Tanner who go in harm's way for the rest of us, and I'm thankful for his marvelous memoirs.
The account is from his point of view as a grunt. The way he writes it, one can almost smell the diesel. The daily routines, the long walk to the chow hall, and the lines at the internet center brought back memories. Our losses somehow fueled our strength as a unit. Tanner does an excellent job of bringing the story of a group of "Outlaws" to the people we fought for.
It was my honor to serve with these men. Great job Bob! I recommend this to anyone wanting to laugh, cry, and feel proud to be an American all at once.
