Abstract:

"In March 2003, Major General Freddie Valenzuela presided over the funeral of the first casualty of the Iraq War. The young soldier was not yet a citizen of the United States, and General Valenzuela wondered what motivated him and many others like him to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. No Greater Love answers this question and many more concerning the dedication of our servicemen and women, specifically Hispanic soldiers, in the U.S. military."

"As he explores the legacy of Hispanics in the military, General Valenzuela guides the reader through his thirty-three-year career that spanned the Cold, Gulf, and Iraq wars. He then looks to the future, touching on controversial issues including the war in Iraq and the obligation of the military to improve diversity in order to remain a viable world force."--Jacket.
