    schema:description ""To preserve the memory of their service during the tumultuous 11 years since their commissioning as Army officers, members of the West Point class of 2004 have written The Strong Gray Line. This class has suffered the highest casualty rate since those that graduated during the Vietnam War. In this book, fourteen of their classmates who lost their lives fighting the Global War on Terror are profiled to help the reader gain an understanding of the bond forged between classmates during their time at West Point, a bond that transcends the separation of death. In addition to the stirring profiles, thirteen personal essays detail some of the most brutal fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan in addition to the struggles endured by those on the home front. These stories range from visceral observations of combat to a wife's anxious wait for her husband to return home. Holistically, these stories define an emotional spectrum that enables the reader to connect not only with the experience of the class of 2004, but also with every man and woman who served their country in time of war. What separates The Strong Gray Line from other war memoirs is the illustration of the endurance of the bond forged at West Point. It is fitting that these exceptional young service members be remembered and revered, not only as examples of selfless and intrepid officership, but also as monuments to the thousands of fellow Americans who served alongside them."--Jacket flap."@en ;
