This show is dedicated to: SFC Jared Monti was not the only hero in the battle on Hill 2610. There were 15 other brave American soldiers in the patrol who refused to back down despite the overwhelming odds against them. Jared undoubtedly would have said, "Write about them. There's no need to mention me." At the very least, he would have approved of having this book dedicated to his comrades-in-arms: SSG Chris Cunningham, SSG Patrick Lybert, SGT John Hawes, SPC John Garner, SSG Chris Grzecki, SPC Sean Smith, SPC Franklin Woods, SPC Brian Gonterman, SPC Max Noble, PFC Brian Bradbury, PFC Derek James, SPC Matthew Chambers, SPC Shawn Heistand, SPC Daniel Linnihan, and SSG Josh Renken.
As John Hawes says, "Jared would have been proud to have this book dedicated to 'his boys.' He would have wanted it known that we fought together as a team."
"It would be a challenge to find a group of soldiers who better represent the legacy of the 10th Mountain Division than the soldiers who fought so bravely on top of that rocky mountain near Gowardesh, Afghanistan," proclaims 10th Mountain Division Commander Major General Stephen J. Townsend. "Although badly outnumbered and separated from their unit, those soldiers refused to accept defeat."

Selling in a Skirt with Judy Hoberman with her Guest Sheryl Adkins-Green & DJ Swinyar:
Since Sheryl joined Mary Kay Inc. in January 2009, she has been instrumental in leading the development of a product portfolio strategy that is generating a sustainable stream of innovative skin care, color and fragrance products. She is driving the development of strategic digital marketing and social media initiatives that are building brand loyalty and enabling independent beauty consultants to successfully sell Mary Kay products anytime and anywhere. Sheryl brings a wealth of knowledge to the Chief Marketing Officer role not only from her Mary Kay experience, but also from her tenure as an executive for several notable Fortune 500 companies including Alberto-Culver, Cadbury-Schweppes, Kraft Foods, and Citigroup where she was a Regional President in Retail Banking.
DJ Swinyar - In speaking I am able to talk about strategies I used to climb up and out from the bottom. In high school I was voted most likely to live at home with my parents forever and most likely to be a stay at home dad. Since then I have learned about how to shift the psychology of an under achiever and the necessary habits to overcome natural laziness. After teaching myself, I now teach others how to be motivated even when they don't feel like it! In investing, I use a unique approach. I hold a BS in Psychology and the way I analyze the stock market is based on the belief that the stock market is ALL psychology. I even call myself the Market Psychologist. One humorous example of the market's psychology is that after the crash of 2008, the S&P 500 bottomed out at $666. It is interesting that once this point was hit, people didn't dare go any lower.
