Inspiring

All to often the real heros are overlooked because they look like you and I. You really don't know the sacrifices they have made. This is one story that people should read. Not for the feint of heart, but then you probably wouldn't be viewing this item if you fit that description. Brad Kasal is a face, a picture of valor, for all those who go unnoticed and unappreciated. Nathan A. Steeves

Left me wanting more...from the Devil Dogs!

This book was very nice reading. I read it in one sitting and I was left very impressed with 1stSgt Kasal's harrowing experience fighting in Al-Falluja. As a former Marine I am biased towards the special mission of our Marines. However, the story of the fine men that were involved in this battle, was riveting. As 1stSgt Kasal explains that the Marines haven't been involved in urban warfare since Vietnam's battle of Hue city, the Tet offensive. As Marines, or any trained ground combat forces know, fighting in close quarters is the most dreaded situation any combatant can encounter. And as always, it is up to the ground pounders, the grunts, to weed out the enemy and destroy them. No bomb from the sky(conventional anyways),ever works completely. It didn't work in Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo, or Okinawa, history has shown that to be true. That is why Marines, are all trained to be marksmen or riflemen, meaning, learned men/women that set their sights on the enemy and shoot to kill in every situation. The best at this profession are the highly trained and motivated Infantry units of the Marine Corps. And 1stSgt Kasal, along with his men, where doing just that in Iraq. Killing insurgents, who for the most part are a threat to the security of The United States Of America. Al-Falluja was a show down ready to happen, and the Marines were ready and willing to fight it out with the Jihadist who were taunting and killing Marines, service men, and foreign contractors in and around that area. If we don't fight them in their territories then they will bring the fight to the States, it's just that simple. It happened during 9/11 and it will not stop until radical Islamist conquers the world for their form of Islam. History is full of these examples, like the Almohades in Sefarad (Spain) during the 13th Century. That is why we should all thank G-D that their are Marines willing to suffer, kill the enemy or be killed, so that we can keep our way of life. 1stSgt Kasal, through his heroism, has entered into the annals of Marine Corp lore that only a select few can be proud to be remembered by. Men like, Chesty Puller, John Bastilone, Dan daily, who with their extraordinary acts of heroism have fulfilled the mission of being called United States Marines. When I first saw that famous photograph of 1stSgt Kasal being helped by his Marines, all bloody, but defiant holding his 9mm Beretta, I almost lost it. Why, because I know that they are over there fighting and dieing for our freedom. This by no means is an easy job, nor one that should be taken lightly. Being shot at and hated, for the sake of differences of opinion and lifestyles is no easy mission. The Marines go to the troubled areas of the world, because they are sent and they follow orders. They represent the American people, in more ways than one. They represent freedom, democracy, and the American why of life. For that, they are despised and bloodied every day by people who hold little value for our ways of life

Served With Honor

I served with SgtMaj Kasal both in Fallujah and in the states with 3rd Bn, 1st Marines. He was a outstanding leader, stern, fair and always cared about his Marines. This book is a great account of the sacrafices made not only by SgtMaj Kasal but that of the men that fought and died on the streets of Fallujah with the Thundering Third. OOORRRAAAHHH! and Semper Fi. Cpl Hill 3rd Bn, 1st Marines Combat Vet Operation Al Fajr

Hard Hitting and Honest

This book is indeed a Must Read. It should be read by anyone who has the authority to send Marines into battle. It should be read by the American People so that they see the true grit of this modern generation. This book should be read by anyone who thinks that military leadership is something that can be taught in a school. Marines lead from the front and 1st Sgt Kasal is the example that we all need to follow.

Seargent's Major

I am lucky enough to have an autographed copy of SgtMaj Kasla's book. I read it cover to cover in 2 days. This book is oustanding. The personal disregard for his own safety for his Marines is unmeasurable. A must buy... Semper Fi
