How do I become a great leader and follower? How can I use my money, marriage, and character to bring glory to God? Ultimately, how do I get the most out of this life? Away from his family and alone with his thoughts, Captain Bart Newman sought answers to these questions during his year-long deployment in Iraq. Realizing that he might not return home, he recorded his search in a journal that he could leave for his daughter. That journal became this book. In Because of Baghdad, Bart uses his experiences from Iraq and faith in God to address the important issues of life. The stories of heroism and heartache will help you better understand what matters most and what you should be living for. If you are ready to get the most out of life, read what one father would say, if he didn't come home to say it. BART NEWMAN served in Baghdad, Iraq with the U.S. Army's XVIII Airborne Corps out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Bart holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Georgia (magna cum laude) where he was President of the Student Government and a member of two SEC Championship tennis teams. Bart also holds a master's in Management, Economics & International Relations from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and a Juris Doctor (cum laude) from the University of Georgia School of Law. Bart is an attorney in Atlanta, Georgia where he lives with his wife, Julie, and their two children, Kate and Luke. 100% of book profits benefit the children of service members killed in Iraq or Afghanistan.
