Last Flag Flying by Darryl Ponicsan


When middle-aged, veteran Meadows  learns that the authorities have told him a lie about the circumstances of the death of his son, a Marine killed in Iraq, he reunites, with the aging companions Billy Bad-Ass Buddusky and Mule Mulhall to perform a sacred task: the proper burial of his body.

So begins the journey up the Eastern seaboard, both a solemn mission and a protest against injustice a celebration of life that is at once irreverent, funny, profane, and deeply moving.
