Named an Amazon 2013 Best Nonfiction Book of the Year, Thank You for Your Service, tells the poignant stories of Iraq war veterans and their families as they adjust to life in the aftermath of combat. The book has been hailed for its unflinching portrayal of the war’s lasting impact on soldiers, their loved ones and, ultimately, our society.
Reading and discussion of the book will be cornerstones of Adelphi’s year-long focus on the Changing Nature of War and Peace.
Author and Pulitzer Prize winner David Finkel will be on campus in October to talk with students.
Copies of Thank You for Your Service in multiple languages will be available at the Swirbul Library for any interested faculty, staff, students and administrators to check out and read. Adelphi’s libraries at its centers in Manhattan, Hauppauge and Hudson Valley centers also have copies available.
