A Story of Service, Leadership, and Inspiration: Lt. Col. Mark Weber

Please RSVP: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/V8V7BHRAt the high point of a soaring career in the U.S. Army, Lt. Col. Mark Weber was tapped by General David Petraeus to serve in a high profile job within the Afghan Parliament as a military advisor. Within weeks, a physical revealed Stage IV intestinal cancer in the 38-year-old father of three. Over the next two years he would fight a desperate battle.  When Mark realized that he was not going to survive this final tour of combat, he began to write a letter to his boys, so that as they grew up without him, they would know what his life-and-death story had taught him—about courage and fear, challenge and comfort, words and actions, pride and humility, seriousness and humor, and a never-ending search for new ideas and inspiration. This letter, now a book, Tell My Sons… is not just for his sons. It’s for everyone who could use the last best advice a dying hero has to offer – an incredibly powerful story of encouragement, empowerment, and inspiration.
