Have you ever met a person or group of people that you simply just like? I have and they are Marines! My brother-in-law proudly served 3 tours in Iraq - Captain Adam Mathes.
At his recent wedding - finely dressed hot Marines were everywhere. Really there were only 8 in uniform, one of those being the groom, but it felt like more. This was a single woman's dream. One of those dreams that when you wake up, you roll over, and pray to fall back asleep to start dreaming again. As a happily married woman, (to an equally hot man) I stood back and watched from a gentle distance.
I haven't had the privilege of spending much time with these fine men, but have been privileged to stories about their amazing service to our Country.
Now for share time. Two of those amazing Marine Officers are also amazing writers.
My brother-in-law sent numerous emails and letters home from his 3 tours in Iraq. My husband Benjamin (amazing actor and teacher) turned Adam's war-time writings into a one man show called 'Fallujah Good'. Check it out.
War and Women Written by Captain Alexander Martin, United States Marines. Alex's stuff is crazy good. A review by me wouldn't do it justice. You won't be disappointed!
OK, so go read it already.
