My friend, the author Rinker Buck has come out with a new book called “Shane Comes Home.” Some of you may know Rinker from his popular aviation memoir titled, “Flight of Passage.” Anyway, I went to a reading the other night here in NYC and the book is just terrific. It’s about Shane Childers, the first Marine to die in the Iraq War, two years ago this week.
Now I know some of you might remember me best for my colorful political commentary during the recent elections, but this book is largely apolitical. Instead, it’s a tribute to a U.S. Marine who made the ultimate sacrifice.
It’s a worthy read. Here’s the Amazon link
