Read for “something with pictures” in #nonfiction2019, this follows several cadets at West Point for 4 years in the time just before/after the terrorist attacks on 9-11-2001. As a mom of a US Marine who also graduated from a senior military institute, I loved this view into the thought process that goes into why young people make the choice to attend and serve. Well written; the author actually lived at West Point while researching.
If only I could spend everyday at the lakehouse and enjoy this view every morning...I‘m updating my index of books read for #litsyatoz and #nonfiction2019 this morning, while enjoying this view of my front yard, and eggs, toast and sausage. Going back to work—which has been super stressful for some months now—will be very hard.
