This news absolutely thrills me.  Finally a worthy addition to the list who will be brought to the attention of the world furthering his mission.  More books to add to my own list!

His book was absolutely amazing. I loved the humanitarian aspect he brought in his account. A true American hero and an inspiration.

Awesome. Read "The Heart and the Fist" last year and loved it.

PS: What team was he on? His book never mentions it. I think he has cameos in The Finishing School by Couch.
