Rage Away

My brother, Thomas Daly's first book

 

It is safe to say that growing up in a military family has certainly impacted my views on life. When I spoke to my brother, the author of his new book Rage Company, for the first time after his six month deployment to Ramadi, he told me to quit complaining about my life and realize that innocent people were currently being killed over seas. I gaped back at him, unsure of what to say  and embarrassed about stressing over a debacle I now can’t even remember. So yes, it is very easy for me to say that Thomas’ company was accurately named Rage, and with good reason. In his story about befriending innocent Iraqis to fight against the Al Qaeda he presents emotions of fear, strength and passion  to replay the battles he struggled while attempting to save the innocent lives of others. All the while, he was making Ramadi one of the safest places in Iraq. Considering that during Thomas’ deployment Ramadi was one of the most infested cities with Al Qaeda, he obviously did his job well. His description of deployment is full of raging battle scenes, suspenseful missions and it gives  a glimpse into the life of a Marine Corps Officer risking everything he’s ever known to make a difference in the world.
