“Here is one statistic that can never be understated: 130%. That is the percentage of American warriors who are reenlisiting while at war.”
That’s from a WashingtonPost.com commentary on General Petraeus’ testimony by David Bellavia, a former Army Staff Sergeant who is the author of “House to House” a memoir of his combat experiences in the second battle for Fallujah.
Just this morning a friend strongly recommended that I listen to the House To House audiobook. This op-ed confirms that Bellavia is a new voice who deserves a lot of attention.
