At the pinnacle of a soaring career in the US Army, Lt.
Col. Mark M. Weber was tapped to serve in a high-profile job within the Afghan
Parliament as a military advisor. Weeks later, a routine physical revealed
stage IV intestinal cancer in the thirty eight year old father of three. Over
the next two years he would fight a desperate battle he wasn’t trained for,
with his wife and boys as his reluctant but willing fighting force.
When Weber realized he was not going to survive this final
tour of combat, he began to write a letter to his boys, so that as they grew up
without him, they would know what his life-and-death story had taught him about
courage and fear, challenge and comfort, words and actions, pride and humility,
seriousness and humor, and viewing life as a never-ending search for new ideas
This book is that letter. And it’s not just for his sons.
It’s for everyone who can use the best advice a dying hero has to offer.
Weber’s stories illustrate that in the end you become what
you are through the causes to which you attach yourself, and that you’ve made
your own along the way. Through his example, he teaches how to live an ordinary
life in an extraordinary way. Download and start listening now!
