About the Book:
On one calm morning in late July 2006, a ten vehicle convoy departed its Forward Operating Base in southeastern Afghanistan. Destination: KANDAHAR. Less than five hours later one soldier awoke, burned and bloody, in a ditch on the side of the road.
This is the story of Sergeant B.C. Fleming. A Team Leader in a Reconnaissance Platoon with the US Army's 10th Mountain Division, Fleming recounts his grueling experience of waging war in the high-desert mountains of Afghanistan. From being shot at to getting blown up TWICE to delivering humanitarian aid to impoverished children, he candidly describes "the real story" of the war in Afghanistan as he experienced it.
His story is one of truth, pain, sacrifice, soul-searching, and the unthinkable adversity American troops overcome daily in order to protect and defend the American people.
Make sure to stop by B&B Media's blog and read their interview with B. C. Fleming.
Every American should read this amazing and inpsirational book! It takes the reader through the life-changing events of one outstanding individual and a true hero, Brian Fleming.

Surviving 2 bombings, Brian traveled a horrendous road back from being badly burned and now travels and helps other surviving war trauma.
This book is not for the faint of heart. Brian puts it right out there - telling it matter-of-factually and takes the reader through the horrors of what he dealt with - physical pain, emotions and feelings and the trauma that took a tole on himself as well as his family when he returned from Afghanistan.
This is an amazing story of faith, love, gratitude, healing and finding one's own purpose. Make sure to add this incredible book to your list of must-reads for this year. Brian's story is nothing less than amazing!
