A personal history of war from bestselling authors John McCain and Mark Salter, told through the stories of thirteen remarkable American soldiers who fought in the nation?s major military conflicts, from the Revolution of 1776 through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As a veteran himself, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and a long-time student of history, John McCain brings a distinctive perspective to the experience of war. With Mark Salter, Thirteen Soldiers tells the stories of real soldiers who personify valor, obedience, enterprise, and love. You?ll meet Joseph Plumb Martin, who at the tender age of fifteen fought in the Revolutionary War; Charles Black, a freeborn African American sailor in the War of 1812; and Sam Chamberlain, of the Mexican American War, whose life inspired novelist Cormac McCarthy. Then there?s Oliver Wendell Holmes, an aristocratic idealist disillusioned by the Civil War, and Littleton? Tony? Waller, court-martialed for refusing to massacre Filipino civilians. Each story illustrates a particular aspect of war, such as Mary Rhoads, an Army reservist forever changed by an Iraqi scud missile attack during the Persian Gulf War; Monica Lin Brown, a frontline medic in rural Afghanistan who saved several lives in a convoy ambush; and Michael Monsoor, a Navy SEAL, who smothered a grenade before it could detonate on his men in Iraq. From their acts of self-sacrifice to their astonishing valor in the face of unimaginable danger, these? inspirational accounts of thirteen Americans who fought in various wars?aptly reveal humanizing moments in such theaters of cruelty?

A Rhoades Unraveled
Michael Rhoades wakes up one morning and has no idea that within twenty-four hours he will lose his job, his wife, his mistress, and the respect of his children. These events send him wandering the freeways of the west trying to escape his life and at the same time, make sense of it. His trip takes him to the hometown he has avoided for years, his old college campus, and a side trip to Las Vegas where he meets a woman who may be crazy or may be the perfect woman for him. His journey ends with a chance meeting that will tear his world apart and will bring meaning to it at the same time.
While the council generally agreed they would like to continue working with Fairway and Westwood, they disagreed on whether the three cities should try to manage the bid without using MARC’s $20,000 consultation services. The services would include an additional administrative fee of about $3,200 for Roeland Park, $2,000 for Fairway and $800 for Westwood. The administrative fees are based on the total solid waste fees each city is charged. MARC facilitated the current contract between the three cities, which according to a city report “yielded lower solid waste service fees with enhanced solid waste services. The cities currently receive solid waste services through WCA/Town and Country Disposal. Councilman Michael Rhoades supported working with Fairway and Westwood but suggested the cities save the consultation fee and have city administrators handle the bid process. Rhoades said that if Roeland Park did proceed with MARC he did not agree with dividing the administrative fee based on solid waste fee charges. “It’s a three city process,” Rhoades said. “I think it should be divided equally between three cities. City administrator Keith Moody said he did not think the other two cities would agree to move forward without using MARC. Rhoades said he was confident city administrators could handle the contract and questioned why the other cities wouldn’t agree. ” Rhoades asked. Councilor Sheri McNeil agreed with Rhoades’ suggestion to forgo using MARC and said she thought if Roeland Park decided they didn’t want to use MARC the other two communities may follow. “I think that the cities can work together on this,” McNeil said. Councilor Becky Fast said she was on the council when the decision to work with MARC was made. Fast said the cities only agreed to come together after the neutral party was brought in to manage the process. “I don’t see them willing to come together unless we have MARC,” she said. Councilman Ryan Kellerman questioned whether the city should consider taking the request for proposal process to an open market and mentioned he had heard from several residents they were receiving poor trash pick-up service. Rhoades proposed to amend the agreement so that the three cities would attempt to move forward without MARC. If that attempt failed the three cities would then move forward with MARC. ’” Rhoades said. The motion to amend the agreement was made by Rhoades and seconded by Kellerman. Councilmembers Rhoades, Kellerman, McNeil and Tim Janssen voted in favor of the amendment. Councilmembers Fast, Erin Thompson, Teresa Kelly and Michael Poppa voted against the amendment. Mayor Joel Marquardt was not present at the meeting so Thompson, who was serving as acting mayor, was able to vote twice and the amendment failed. Rhoades then made a motion to table the discussion until the next council meeting or workshop.
