Eleven years ago, right after 9/11, a member of our military emailed me from a submarine. He said he couldn't tell me where he was stationed, but he gave me a message that day. It came in the form of a "thank you." Eleven years later, after a trip with the USO, here's the real story of what happened between us. And… during my recent book signing… his final gift as he arrives to surprise me in person.
I owe this man forever.
