About the Author
Richard Galli peels back decades of cynicism and shows us that within the young Americans we send to war there sometimes beat gentle, optimistic, hilarious hearts. A former Army interpreter, journalist, and then a lawyer for nearly thirty years, he reduced his law practice to help care for his son, who was paralyzed in a swimming accident on the Fourth of July, 1998. His memoir, Rescuing Jeffrey, was hailed as “a huge story . . . unflinchingly told” by The New York Times Book Review. Galli lives with his family in East Greenwich, Rhode Island.
