While on the range waiting for my firing order, I’m reading an
incredible book titled, “Gates of Fire” written by Steven Pressfield.
This particular book is on many command reading lists in the combat
arms community of the Army. It is a fictional depiction of the battle
of Thermopylae as told by Xeones a squire of the Spartan heavy infantry.
You may know this story better as it was portrayed through the movie
My headphones are playing the movie soundtrack, an incredible addition
to my book.
