Publisher Description

Recounts the personal story of how two Naval academy roommates--US Marine Travis Manion and US Navy SEAL Brendan Looney--defined a generation's sacrifice after 9/11, and how their loved ones carry on in their memory
Four weeks after Navy SEALs had killed Osama bin Laden, the President of the United States stood in Arlington National Cemetery. In his Memorial Day address, he extolled the courage and sacrifice of the two young men buried side by side in the graves before him: Travis Manion, a fallen US Marine, and Brendan Looney, a fallen US Navy SEAL. Although they were killed three years apart, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, these two best friends and former roommates were now buried together--"brothers forever."

Award-winning journalist Tom Sileo and Travis's father, former Marine colonel Tom Manion, come together to tell thisd intimate story, from Travis's incredible heroism on the streets of Fallujah to Brendan's anguished Navy SEAL training in the wake of his friend's death and his own heroism in the mountains of Afghanistan. Brothers Forever is a remarkable story of friendship, family, and war.

As a veteran of the Vietnam war I was touched by the friendship between two brave warriors. To the families your recounting of the events must have been difficult, but also so brave.
I cried and felt deep sorrow for the two families. I felt pride in having been a brother in arms from a bygone war. This is a must read for anyone who wants to know the sacrifices our brave young men give for our freedom.

Everyone should read this book. Most of us in America can not totally understand the sacrifice of our military personnel. Thank you all for your service!
