Love Me When I'm Gone is a tale for the ages, the perfect blend of action, romance, heroes, villains, patriotism, and valor. What holds this story above all others is the fact that this one is true.

    " This book was exactly what it claims to be in the title. One man's journey through training, combat, humanitarian missions, loss, love, and becoming a member of the Special Forces. The story was interesting, heartfelt, and difficult to put down. "
