I have read "True Believer" by Nicholas Sparks and "One Soldier's Story," by Bob Dole. The Sparks one wasn't my favorite, but that's because I'm a guy. The Bob Dole story was amazing. It made me much more aware of the sacrifices made by his generation of soldiers, as well as those who came before and after him, so that I can live in freedom in this great nation. Mr. Dole's story should be required reading in high schools, in my not-so-humble opinion. But if you're already past high school age, there's still great lessons to be learned from his experience.
