I am excited to be the first to review this book!!!...First of all, my boyfriend bought this book for me. He is a Marine who served in Iraq, which makes this book even more meaningful to me. Second of all, i LOVE animals and just had to have this book. It is a truly heartwarming read, where a bunch of "trained tough" Marines go through hell and high water to nurture and save the life of a little 2-month old puppy...while remaining focused on the war...(feeding/keeping ANY animal is also highly prohibited to boot). I would recommend this book to a serviceman/woman, an animal lover or anyone just looking for a great thing to come out of a horrible war...Bad news is: Not only is this one a keeper...as a gift, i will not part with this book!
