All American: Two Young Men, The 2001 Army-Navy Game and the War They Fought In Iraq

Had the honor of interviewing Steve Eubanks today as a part of getting ready for Veterans Day next month. The book, All American: Two Young Men, the 2001 Army-Navy Game and the War They Fought in Iraq is a moving examination of the nations finest leaders as the go from the playing field, where they meet on a single play, to the battlefields of Iraq where both men, Army and Marine, comport themselves in keeping with the highest traditions of the services.

When they meet again, ten years after the game, they are forever changed and forever linked.

The interview will air on Monday, November 11th (and again on Friday December 12th) and you won’t want to miss it!
