Publisher Comments:

On April 10th, 2003, the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, faced with the task of seizing the presidential palace in downtown Baghdad, ran headlong into what Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North called, the worst day of fighting for U.S. Marines. Hiding in buildings and mosques, wearing civilian clothes, and spread out for over a mile, Saddam Hussein's militants rained down bullets and rocket propelled grenades on the 1st Battalion. But when the smoke of the eight-hour battle cleared, only one Marine had lost his life. Some said the 1st Battalion was incredibly lucky. But in the hearts and minds of the Marines who were there, there was no question. God had brought them miraculously through that battle.

As the 1st Battalion's chaplain, Lieutenant Carey Cash had the unique privilege of seeing firsthand, from the beginning of the war to the end, how God miraculously delivered, and even transformed, the lives of the men of the 1st Battalion.

Synopsis:

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.”

-Psalm 23:5

There are some places where you just dont expect to find God. For the men of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, downtown Baghdad was one of those places. Moving into the heart of Iraq and ever deeper into enemy territory, they found themselves face-to-face with the ruthless Iraqi Republican Guard and Fedayeen militia. But when the smoke cleared, Gods touch was clearly visible.

Serving as a chaplain to the U.S. Marines, Lieutenant Carey Cash had witnessed the miracles that began in the desert of northern Kuwait, and found their culmination in one of the fiercest battles of Operation Iraqi Freedom. With vivid detail and gripping emotion, Lt. Cash gives a firsthand account of this amazing story-how the men of an entire battalion found God in the presence of their enemies.

Synopsis:

The chaplain with the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment shares the dramatic firsthand account of how these men experienced God's presence amidst the chaos of the war in Iraq.

I served with Chaplain Cash from February 2003 when we arrived in Kuwait until late may of 2003 when we left. This man helped me find God again when I needed him most. He also helped me walk through the valley of the shadow of death...and survive. i know the accounts of this book firsthand because I went through it. i had a strange premontion that I was meant to die in Iraq and Chaplain Cash helped me overcome my fear as well as come to terms with dying if it came down to it.
