Full Description:

This is the first paperback edition of the riveting story of legendary U.S. Marine First Sergeant Brad Kasal. It is a page-turning account of Kasal's courageous mission to rescue fallen comrades while under intense enemy fire during the Battle of Fallujah. At a house in a walled neighborhood, Kasal and his squad became involved in a close-quarter, two hour duel with fanatical Chechen fighters. During the fight, Kasal was shot seven times, almost losing his leg, and sustained 47shrapnel wounds using his body to shield a wounded Marine from an enemy grenade. Because of his actions in the skirmish, Kasal was awarded the Navy Cross, the nation’s second highest award for heroism.

My Men Are My Heroes has been selected as required reading by the Marine Commandant’s Reading List and as a "Marine Corps Legend" book by the Marine Corps League.

My Men Are My Heroes is part of the Leatherneck Classics Series.

Nathaniel R. Helms is a Vietnam veteran, former police officer, and writer who lives in St. Charles, MO. Helms worked in newspapers, wire services, radio and television before retiring to teach.
