And then?
Introduction
I'm the author of "They Fought for Each Other: The Triumph and Tragedy of the Hardest Hit Unit in Iraq," and I work as a freelance writer covering veterans' issues. I'm working on two books: edits on a mystery novel with a Desert Storm angle and a co-writing project I can tell you more about later... I'm an Army veteran and served in Desert Storm and in Mogadishu, Somalia, and I embedded as a reporter in Iraq and Afghanistan. 
Bragging rights
I was a finalist for the Michael Kelly Award, a Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Foundation fellow, an Ochberg fellow, and past-president of Military Reporters & Editors
