What does life hold when you''re a Marine Embassy Guard in the Middle East? In "Shattered Glass," Sergeant Greg Matos answers that question.

Through his experiences as a Marine in the early 2000s, Matos offers a compelling look at the roles Marines play in today''s war on terror. Although he enters the military with visions of glory and honor, Matos realizes the Marine Corps isn''t always what he expected. Not everyone embraces the integrity Marines are known for, and at times, "the mission" takes a backseat. Yet it is his mission as an Embassy Guard where Matos encounters his greatest conflict.
