Marines’ Memorial Association & Foundation invites you to our next Meet The Author Panel featuring a trio of accomplished OIF/OEF Veteran authors at the Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel for a short presentation by each author, followed by a moderated Question & Answer period.


Come and hear these recent Veterans discuss their books and provide a perspective of recent combat operations and veterans’ affairs.


Major Fred Galvin, USMC (Ret) served twenty-six years as a Marine infantry, reconnaissance, force reconnaissance, and special operator in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other hotspots. His recent book, ‘A Few Bad Men’ is a non-fiction account of the first Marine Special Operations Task Force that was deployed to combat in Afghanistan and was caught in a Taliban-coordinated complex ambush and provides the full story of the case including the declassified courtroom testimonies from the most highly publicized war crimes trial during the war in Afghanistan.


Amy Forsythe is an award-winning military journalist who has served five combat deployments covering military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Born and raised in Santa Rosa, CA, she joined the Marine Corps in 1993 as a combat correspondent. Her imagery from covering military operations around the world has been featured in numerous international and national media outlets. Her photos and video content continue to be used for historical purposes in documentaries and academic research. Her first book. ‘Heroes Live Here: A Tribute to Camp Pendleton Marines Since 9/11’ started as a passion project to showcase the memorials and markers on Camp Pendleton which has turned into a collaborative work of art that honors our fallen heroes of the post-9/11 generation.


Major Scott Huesing, USMC (Ret) is no stranger to the Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel. He is a former infantry officer with over 24 years of enlisted and commissioned service including 10 deployments and operations in over 60 countries, during which he planned, led, and conducted hundreds of combat missions under some of the most austere and challenging conditions. In his 2018 book, ‘Echo in Ramadi: The Firsthand Story of US Marines in Iraq’s Deadliest City,’ Huesing transports readers to the deadly streets of Iraq in a visceral, gripping portrayal of urban combat. Bound together by honor and surrounded by chaos, his Marines battled on the frontlines of a war without rules against an elusive, ruthless enemy who wore no uniforms and showed little mercy. ‘Echo in Ramadi’ is an unforgettable portrayal of war that will leave readers amazed and moved by the experiences and emotions of combat.
