A book event on May 22 for the book Brothers Forver at the American Enterprise Institute, featuring retired Gen. John Allen:

A fallen US Marine lies buried next to a fallen US Navy SEAL, his friend and former Naval Academy roommate, in Arlington Cemetery. Both young men gave the last full measure of devotion in answering their country’s post-9/11 call. In this AEI Program on American Citizenship event, award-winning author Tom Sileo will discuss with AEI’s Gary Schmitt the friendship and heroism of Travis Manion and Brendan Looney as recounted in Sileo’s new coauthored book, “Brothers Forever” (Da Capo Press, 2014). 

Following this discussion, Gen. John Allen will sit down with AEI’s Thomas Donnelly to talk about the significance of Memorial Day, the day we honor and remember those who gave their lives in defense of our country, those who have served, and those who are still serving.
