A heart-wrenching story...

...that marches through the exploits of a naïve Bosnian teen who joins the U.S. Army to earn his American citizenship while coming to grips with the upheavals in his homeland. The tale is told by a cynical, yet self-deprecating, war correspondent who, over the years, has reported on similar pursuits in bizarre locations around the globe.

The book’s theme is as fundamental as the core values of any American Soldier: Life can become richer and everyone become stronger when we look beyond stereotypes and appreciate each other for the unique individuals we are.

CEO, J. G. Meyer & Associates


Publisher’s Note:   General Meyer is a proud and dedicated Soldier with 33 years of distinguished service to his credit. He's also the author of Company command: the bottom line,  an authoritative leadership text widely used throughout the Defense Department.

Green Card Soldier moments...

As I come across intriging and inspiring photos of American service members engaged in the naturalization experience, I will post them here as encouragement for other Green Card Soldiers  seeking information about becoming a U.S. citizen.
