Unforgettable Men in Unforgettable
Stories of Honor, Courage, Commitment, and Faith from World
by Robert 'Bob' Boardman, USMC
Warfare is much more than a test of skill, determination, and
military prowess. It is a great crucible in which men and unthinkable
hardships are meshed together. The events are shaped by the
men present there, and the results become history. The man,
however, who endures the challenges of battle goes on with his
life. The vignettes in this book are about unforgettable men
who served in the cauldron of battle and should not be forgotten.
They are a lantern for us that can illuminate the values that
are the bedrock of strength in our lives.

31 Meals for the Long March
By Robert 'Bob' Boardman, USMC
Young men have the illusion that death is very remote, an illusion
that is normally lost, slowly, by installments, over the years.
But war is so extreme, its carnage so agonizing. This illusion
is lost all at once and one is driven to the precipice of an
intense and sober contemplation on the meaning and significance
of life. This powerful effect of war marks a man. The effect
that Bob Boardman's book has had on me, through the poignant
stories of his own battle experiences and those of others is
profound. But unlike other books on war, Bob just doesn't leave
you on the precipice, but gives a message of hope based on the
most important truth of all.
