With a foreword by Bill O'Reilly, here is the incredible memoir of a former marine who returns to combat in Iraq and Afghanistan three decades after leaving the corps.
Terry McGowan had been a beat cop, a marine captain, and a special agent for the FBI before retiring at the age of 50. But when tragedy struck the United States on September 11, 2001, Terry felt an undiminished sense of duty to protect and serve his country.
Six years later he was in Iraq as a member of a team of high-ranking retired and active-duty military working for the highest level of marine military intelligence. His success in Iraq led to a position as a law enforcement professional with the marines in Afghanistan. There he found himself the oldest member of a platoon on the front line - a platoon that was understrength and under fire. While an 18-year-old marine can't look at a crowd of Afghans and pick out the guilty party, with his years of experience in law enforcement, Terry had developed an eye for the "felony look". His training as a marine officer, combined with his experience as an FBI agent, made him a unique asset as he struggled to keep up with young marines while they humped over the mountains.
In The Silence of War, Terry recounts the many trials of his life of service, providing an intimate glimpse into the horrible realities of modern military conflict.
