His gripping memoir guides you through intense mountain warfare from an austere outpost as well as street to street fighting and hostage situations in downtown Khost City. This skillfully written, award winning memoir, is one you are sure to enjoy as Rickard shares the thrill of victory and the agony of losing men in battle.

From Matt McAvoy of Kindle Book Review:
“Laura’s writing is quite lovely – heartfelt and sincere, with a stern presentation of the facts. The book is incredibly well-researched and intelligently considered, and the cruel treatment is contextualized not by anger, but by balanced collation of events, studies and dog behavioral training practices. This is an important book which needed to be written by a disciplined professional and an animal lover, both of which clearly apply to Laura. She is a very articulate and hard-working author.”

In “The Band Director’s Lessons About Life”, author Donald Lee draws on his decades as both a band director and religion teacher to create modern-day parables from the classroom. People of any religious persuasion—or none—will be delighted and inspired by how these band-room vignettes shine a spiritual light on everyday experiences. The parables are short enough to read in the bathroom yet deep enough to ponder for days.
It’s a cross between “Chicken Soup for the Soul”, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”, and “Conversations with God”. If you liked any of those books, you’ll love this one.
