Excellent Character Education Material!  Jan 30, 2007
This book is an enjoyable read with an inside look at military life from the General's professional and personl life. Teacher's should take note! This would be excellent material for a character education segment of curriculum. It's riveting and heartfelt with a lot of perserverance against all odds thrown in. Your students will be inspired to be excellent and hard working.
 
Generals book recieves 5 stars  Jan 29, 2007
A great read from start to finish. If you enjoy history, the military or stories of personal success, this book is for you. General Curry personifies what it is to be an American, and his book elucidates this perfectly. As an American you can accomplish anything by dreaming big, working hard and following after God.

Sets the bar high for the rest of us mere mortals...  Jan 11, 2007
General Curry's life is the penultimate example of a life well lived, an American success story of the highest caliber. His book is no exception. It is a quick and interesting read--filled with wisdom, insight and inspiration. Add it to your reading list today!
 
American Made  Jan 9, 2007
There is a popular quote by George Orwell which goes something like "People sleep well in their beds because rough men go out and do violence on their behalf." We need to be grateful that people like Curry, endowed with both superior character and intellect, served in our armed forces. Curry does us all proud, and his book is a testament to the best of what the United States is about.
