This is a true story based on Master SGT CJ Grishams personal account from one of his many tours in Iraq. The Cover art for the book was done by Nathan Thomas Milliner, with the forward by Larry Hama a Vietnam veteran and and GI Joe creator. Script was done by Tomm Gabbard, Pencil art & Inks by Joshua Labello, and lettering by Johnny Lowe. This is a heart felt story presented by MSGT Grisham who was a FSGT at the time these events occurred.It is his personal story of how he nearly Lost his Soul! Also you will see a few pinups that are also in the book. Also a Tribute to SPC Cody Grater who we honored in Volume one. And the back cover of the book is an ad for Force protection Industries with out whom this book would not have been published because the donated the entire amount we needed for printing cost. So I hope you enjoy this small sampling of our publication done to give our troops a voice and help try and bridge the gap between both civilian and military cultures.” –Clayton D. Murwin
