This week President Erdogan of Turkey expelled the U.S Ambassador and nine diplomats, responding to criticism of Turkey’s interference in Syria and Libya, amid new whisperings of Erdogan’s ambitions to promote an Islamic Caliphate in Central Africa.

Michelle explains why deep poverty and a Wild West open desert mentality are catapulting Niger to the brink of disaster.

In this heartbreaking memoir, Michelle uses exclusive interviews with the survivors of her husband’s unit, research into the military leadership and accountability, and her own unique vantage point as a gold-star widow to tell a previously unknown story. Sacrifice is an emotional look inside a military marriage and a searing investigation of U.S. military decisions.
