"My generation didn't have a compass or a reference point," Welle says. "We had 'Top Gun.' But after 9/11, we found something, a purpose. It's this idea of the long war. We're not trying to be Tom Brokaw's greatest generation. But my classmates have sacrificed their youth, just trying to be this selfless generation that stands the watch during the long war."  Josh  Welle, co-editor of 
In the Shadow of Greatness

"This is a must read for all Americans - an up close and personal account of duty and sacrifice by graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy in Iraq and Afghanistan. You'll stand a little straighter when you mingle with these remarkable fellow citizens."
Tom BrokawAuthor of The Greatest Generation
"The young men and women who have written this book have voluntarily chosen the hard thing, and they richly deserve our honor and our appreciation. These stories are gripping; some are heart wrenching. All of them show what their generation has, can, and God willing, will yet accomplish."
David GergenFrom the Foreword
