Ghosts of War by Ryan Smithson

Instead of going to college and in response to the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, seventeen year old Ryan joins the Army Reserve. When he is nineteen he is called to serve in Iraq. In his own words he tells of his year in Iraq and of the months immediately following his safe return home. This is a powerful and well written memoir.
