This is just a short post to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has bought the book. With the recent royalties received, we have been able to go to over $1000 donated to Fisher House. It's a small amount, maybe not as much as Garry Trudeau or Denzel Washington have given, but if that little sum helps even one family of a wounded soldier, it is worth it. A special thank you from me because the timing is so helpful. After coming home from deployment where I help troops every day in a concrete way, I always feel a little troubled that I am suddenly doing nothing for injured troops. Giving royalties to Fisher House makes me feel like we are doing our small part.

Anyone wishing to give directly can find options at http://www.fisherhouse.org/

Chris, Ordering your book has been on my "to do" list. This post gave me the nudge to go ahead and do it today. Please publish a second book!

I purchased your book. I have included you in my blog. I can not thank you enough for all you have done. I'll be joining "books for soldiers" this week. Thank you for introducing that to your readers. And thanks to your wife and family too.

Thanks, Mary Ann and Tae. I am continually impressed by the support that Americans have for their troops. Be well, Chris
