SETH EXCERPT

FOR YOUR READING ENJOYMENT

“I liked Seth.

The book and the man.”

Ray Simmons

READERS’ FAVORITE

Memories. So damn many memories. They buried him. The day he took off his Marine Corps uniform for the last time. The pain he would never wear it again. He was a Marine—a lifer—a lifetime marriage. And he was good at what he did—an icon with the new, young Marines. He knew it, accepted it without comment. He’d have given his life in a heartbeat to keep his young Marines alive.

The last day in combat. Why did it have to be so ugly? They were on patrol in search of a Taliban leader. Seth’s mood was black. An RPG had killed two members of his team earlier in the day. They never found the leader. Two men died in a futile mission.

The patrol was set to end at 2200 hours. Seth, knelt on the ground, studied the faces of each of the ten surviving members of the joint Alpha-Bravo team. There wouldn’t be any more young Marines looking in awe at his dust-covered, sweat-streaked face. Nor would there be terror-stricken, young Marines hoping Seth would keep them alive. He wanted to hug each one, tell them he loved them. Keep every one of them alive—send them home whole in body and spirit. He failed twice that morning.

The next morning he showered, put on a clean uniform, flew to Germany. He left his young Marines behind. Seth couldn’t brush their faces away. Who would step up now, shield them from death?
