the conclusion of my conversation with author and retired U.S. Marine Major Fred Galvin. Fred served twenty-seven years in the U.S. Marine Corps, beginning as a seventeen-year-old who rose from the enlisted ranks to become an officer. Serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, and elsewhere, he led the first special operations company in the Marines and earned forty-nine military medals and ribbons, including the Bronze Star. His book is A Few Bad Men: The True Story of U.S. Marines Ambushed in Afghanistan and Betrayed in America.
