They were the few selected from the many, trained as elite warriors and tested in battle, where they suffered wounds both physical and psychological. Yet even after injury, these soldiers still carried a burning desire to serve their country.
Author Joe Klein tells the story of decorated Jewish Navy SEAL Eric Greitens, who found that his desire to continue serving was common among fellow veterans. Greitens then created The Mission Continues, an organization that grants fellowships to wounded vets. One of the first recipients, Jake Wood, started Team Rubicon, which forms disaster relief teams made up of veterans and sends them out worldwide. Their unique stories show how skills mastered to destroy can be adapted to create and heal.
Joe Klein is an award-winning journalist and author of six books, including the best-selling novel Primary Colors. Klein’s weekly political column, “In the Arena,” appears in Time magazine. Previously, Mr. Klein was the Washington correspondent for The New Yorker and a political reporter for Newsweek.
