Michael Phillips's The Gift of Valor: a bio of Corporal Jason Dunham

My wife picked him Phillips's book when she worked the telephones for the WBEZ fund raiser. It was a publisher's copy for reviewers and WBEZ was giving them away. Excellent book and not just a moving story about a hero but also a good look at America today through Dunham's life, the way the military handles casualties, and interesting profiles of two Muslim American Marines; one a Chaplain and another wounded in the same fight with Dunham.

Go read it.
