This is an auction for A SOLDIER'S PROMISE: THE HEROIC TRUE STORY OF AN AMERICAN SOLDIER AND AN IRAQI BOY, by Daniel Hendrex and Wes Smith.

“After the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, First Sergeant Daniel Hendrex was dispatched along with his unit, Dragon Company, to Husaybah, a small town bordering Syria in the Sunni-dominated Al Anbar Province in Iraq. Their mission was to plug the bottleneck at the border checkpoint, where foreign fighters and weapons smugglers were filtering to join the insurgency in the region. It was at this checkpoint that Daniel and his men found the most effective ally of the war effort in the most unlikely of sources. In December 2003 a skinny Iraqi kid about fourteen years old approached one of the soldiers at the border and said simply, Arrest me. Jamil, as he was called, claimed to have valuable information about the insurgency, but First Sergeant Hendrex was sceptical -- especially when the boy announced that the man he wanted to turn in was his own father. The story that unfolds is one of heartbreaking tragedy, remarkable courage, and unprecedented resiliency, as this child of the insurgency takes it upon himself to fight back with the help of the U.S. Army. After Jamil helped save countless lives, First Sergeant Hendrex made it his mission to get the boy to safety. A Soldier's Promise is an incredible story of sacrifice and courage by an Iraqi boy and the U.S. soldiers who protected him from certain death by bringing him to the United States.”
