Amercian Brother by Elisa M. Camara (Hardback)

On October 23, 1983, a suicide bomber rammed a truck filled with explosives into barracks housing United States Marines in Beirut, Lebanon. Two hundred forty-one Americans died that day. Among them, Sgt. Mecot Camara. His little sister, Elisa, their family and the small town of Hinton, West Virginia would never be the same. In this moving tribute to her big brother, and all the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, Elisa Camara recounts the life, the loves, and the adventures of an ordinary small town American boy who grew up to become an extraordinary man, a devoted son, husband and father, and, ultimately, a proud United States Marine who gave his life for his country. For Elisa, this is meant to serve not only as a cathartic telling of her brother's amazing story, but also as a reminder of the importance of courage, respect and selflessness--the very qualities that Mecot Camara embodied. The qualities that made him the quintessential American Brother.
