West Point goes to war

I got a note about a book coming out about the first class of War on Terror grads. The video is very cool and I look forward to the book's arrival.

Several years ago, I first learned the story of the U.S. Military
Academy's class of 2002, the first cadets in a generation to graduate from
West Point in wartime.  Theirs is a story of service and sacrifice,
inspiration and honor, heroism and heartbreak---and it is a story I
absolutely had to tell. 

After 42 months of work, more than 600 interviews, and reporting that
took me across the United States and to Iraq, my new book---“In a Time
of War: the Proud & Perilous Journey of West Point’s Class of
2002”---is set for release on September 16

In advance of publication, we're launching a website and a three-minute
"In a Time of War" video.  I'd be grateful if you'd take a look at
these, and also if you'd pass this message on to anyone else you can think
of who might be interested.

.The website is at  There, you'll be able to read more about the book, and even download the first chapter for free. He is working on a release of the Army Song.
