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.

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.
