Report about Book "We Pierce"
The year is 1990. One brother, Smith, goes to war. The other brother, Sam, stays home and protests against the war.
Smith Huebner is a sergeant in the army, gunner of an Abrams tank leading
the way into Iraq in the first Gulf War, a competent, trustworthy soldier, married
and expecting a baby. His younger brother, Sam, is trying to protest against the war
