The culmination of 40 years of journalism, Joe Klein’s new book, Charlie Mike: A True Story of Heroes Who Brought Their Mission Home, is one of the most hopeful and inspiring stories in years. Klein recounts the dramatic return of two larger-than-life war heroes who use their military discipline and values to save others at home. He has discovered models of leadership among our best and brightest in uniform, officers who believe in “active citizenship” and making a real difference in their communities.
"Joe Klein has done us a national service." — Tom Brokaw
In his new speech, “Full Metal Citizenship: Leading Change — From the Battlefield to Main Street,” Klein describes his mission of joy: watching, documenting, and talking about the great efforts of veterans as they continue their mission at home and reinvigorate the country. At a time when optimism is rare, Klein delivers a story of lives saved — not wasted — and a message of hope for the future of the country.
