Publisher's Summary

Russell Vineyard joined the United States Marine Corps as an M1A1 Tank crewman. After USMC Boot Camp and Marine Armor School, Vineyard found himself at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Training and Education Facility Twentynine Palms with 1st Tank Battalion.
In November of 2004, he learned he'd be joining the Marine Corps' 1st Tank Battalion, Delta Company as a tank gunner and headed out on the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit. The United States Military would send the tank platoon across the ocean to participate in a global military exercise in Egypt and to fight the War on Terror in Iraq.
Homecoming Memoirs of a Deployed Marine is the story of one Marine Corps Tankers trip from California to the war-torn desert of Iraq and back again. Life, after this trip, would never be the same.

A high caliber blast

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have already recommended this book to several friends. It really tells the story of what it's like to live as a United States Marine during the Iraq Conflict. The narration of this book really makes it feel like you're there with the guys going through it and living it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Homecoming?

One chapter concerning a mortar attack while in Iraq. I felt briefly as though there were bombs going off all around me. While I know I'll never know how that feels in real life, the narrator managed to put me right in the middle of it and bring out what it must feel like to have bombs go off around you.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

There seems to be a lot of emotion in this book. From boredom to disappointment to anger to worry. There's all around just silliness in some places, which made me laugh more than if I had read it. The narrator just does a great job in all those areas.
