Praise for If Not Now, When?
“Jack Jacobs is a living reminder that dynamite comes in small packages. From his days as a Medal of Honor recipient in Vietnam to his success on Wall Street to his outspoken commentary on MSNBC and his wise counsel to West Point graduates, Jack is the complete citizen.”—Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation
“As good a Vietnam War memoir as I’ve ever read. And if that’s not good enough, Jack Jacobs makes some very brutal, honest, and disturbing observations about America then and America now, and most importantly, about where we are headed. Jack Jacobs earned the Congressional Medal of Honor forty years ago, and he’s earned it every day since.”—Nelson DeMille
“[Jacobs] offers a mix of no-holds-barred personal history and pointed observations about the demands (or lack thereof) the U.S. makes on its citizens today. Never self-indulgent or preachy, Jacobs takes an honest—and often brutally funny—look back at his own life and forward to the future of the military and the nation.”—Parade
“This book is a classic. Jack Jacobs is the bravest—and funniest—soldier I met in thirty-two years of military service. He is also an intellectual with a writer’s gift of description. Jack tells a life story of military service with a sense of humor that makes palatable the brutality of intense combat.”—General Barry M. McCaffrey, U.S. Army (Retired)
