Left Bank Books and St. Louis on the Air welcome retired US Army Captain Flo Groberg, who will sign and discuss his new book, "8 Seconds of Courage: A Soldier’s Story from Immigrant to the Medal of Honor," with Don Marsh!
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "8 Seconds of Courage" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
On November 12, 2015, Captain Florent “Flo” Groberg was given the nation’s highest military award, the Congressional Medal of Honor—the first immigrant to be so recognized since the Vietnam War. "8 Seconds of Courage" tells Flo's story from his childhood in France to his decision to enlist and the grueling training he underwent at US Army Ranger School. Through trial and error, he learned to be a field commander and on the front lines in Afghanistan formed close and lasting bonds with his fellow soldiers. It was this powerful sense of responsibility that compelled him to take his brave action to save lives, even at the risk of his own, and dedicate his time to veterans outreach today.
