A Wisconsin National Guard Airman made headlines earlier this year when he saved the life of a baby by performing the Heimlich maneuver at the Shake Shack restaurant in Skokie, Ill.

It’s important to know how to use our equipment on deployment, Jones said. Simulating a deployed environment like this is the most realistic way to train and build expertise with our systems.

In April 2005 they received the official alert: The Wisconsin Army National Guard's 2-127th Infantry Battalion was being mobilized. After training at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, the 620 soldiers of the Gator Battalion would serve in Operation Iraqi Freedom, providing armed convoy escort and route security throughout all of Iraq, from Umm Qasr in the south to Mosul in the far north. Their mission would take them into the most dangerous regions of Iraq, and during the next year the battalion would withstand hundreds of attacks, see dozens wounded, and lose three members killed in action. Private Soldiers chronicles the 2-127th's year-long deployment from the unique perspective of the soldiers themselves. Written and photographed by three battalion members, the book provides a rare first-hand account of war and life in Iraq. Fascinating soldier interviews reveal the effects of deployment on the troops and on their families back home, and interviews with Iraqi civilians describe the Iraqis' perceptions of life, war, and working alongside Wisconsin troops. Brilliant photography illuminates the 2-127th's year, from training to "boots on the ground" to their return home. And candid photos taken by battalion members capture the soldiers' day-to-day lives and camaraderie. An extremely timely and relevant account of soldiers' lives, Private Soldiers honors Wisconsin's participants in the Iraq war and helps readers understand the war's human side. All royalties from sales of Private Soldiers will go to the 2-127th's family support groups and to funds established in memoriam of the battalion members who gave their lives in the Iraq war.

Understanding the military mind and always trying to find the human side of armed conflict, I appreciate the work in this book and it shows how the bond between military members is forged and how strong it truly is. A very insightful look in to how citizen Soldiers can switch from civilian to military in an instant when needed and how the Army is as much a family as the one we're born or marry in to. This book is a reflection of life in the Army as a family.

A really interesting book filled with great photographs and worthwhile information. The author put some time into making this a worthwhile look at Iraq and the American Soldier's presence. Well worth the purchase price.

Buchholz captures the mobilization deployment experience of the Wisconsin Army National Guard's 2nd battalion of the 127th Infantry Division. From the official alert received in April 2005 to their deployment from August 2005 through August 2006, Captain Buchholz portrays the highs and lows of the experience in words and pictures. Staff Sergeant Joseph Streeter, Lieutenant Nathan Olson, and numerous "phantom" photographers from the unit provide a wealth of photos for this compelling story. Perhaps the most meaningful and moving photo is an aerial shot of a long line of soldiers boarding the Falcon Air transport about to take them to Iraq. Three of the soldiers shown boarding that plane would be killed in action; the return flight of their flag draped caskets creates a stark contrast to the joyous and triumphant homecoming flight of the 2/127th. Several other soldiers would heroically come home with Purple Heart awards and the varying degrees of recovery challenges. The view of the departing flight shows two distinct groups of family members assembled by the hangar: one waving and weeping as their deploying warriors approached and boarded the plane and one group giving final hugs and kisses to their heroes as they emerge from the hangar. The scope of the military movement is deftly told in the detail that obscures yet amplifies the horror and hope of each individual, the fervent wishes and concerns of each family member and friend, and the collective courage of the whole microcosmic experience. This book captures the sense of humor of the American soldier, the excitement of adventure, the heritage of courage, the pride of service, and the emotional tempo of an unforgettable journey.

Not only did I read this but my husband as well and the words and pictures helped dispel some of the anxiety we both have over any up-coming deployments. While it is an account of a very dangerous mission, it also shows the reality of daily living and down time. It also informed me of such things as R & R and communication available when my husband is overseas. It gives a good lay of the land in that area with bases I know my son frequented when he was deployed with the USAF. But mostly it hushes the 'weekend warrior' accusations you get from so many other branches of the military, when you say you are a national guard family.

I really appreciated this account and am passing this book to other national guard families as well as other military branch families. Thank you so much for doing this! Karen Alma

Excellent book. Shows us all how it really is. Certainly too bad that since these pictures were taken some will not come back.

good read!
