|A Quiet Reality
A Chaplain's Journey into Babylon, Iraq with the 1 Marine Expeditionary Force
From the Bronx to the rivers of Babylon, the "Mayor of Babylon" Chaplain Emilio Marrero tells a fascinating story of war, compassion, struggles, faith, and ancient biblical history in a country that we read about daily -- Iraq. As he describes the different events, it is obvious he continues to carry out the order of his Marine Commanding Officer: "Take care of my Marines." He tells the true story of saving Babylon for civilization. Strongly recommended, a must read, A Quiet Reality is a different view of the war, the people, and the accomplishments made in that part of the world.
