(From the publisher):
California surfer Cody "Cowboy" Carmichael's life is forever changed when he meets Private Tommy Trang at boot camp. Trang is not your typical American patriot: he's a bastard child of the Vietnam War, the son of an unknown U.S. marine. Sent to fight in the Gulf War, Trang soon loses his heart to a sixteen-year-old Kuwait princess trapped behind the lines when the Iraqis invade her country. Together, the two young marines are ready to wave the American flag all the way to Baghdad, or at least into occupied Kuwait, to rescue Princess Lulu.
During this exciting, moving, and often hilarious account of these two AWOL privates sneaking across Iraqi lines, the mellow Carmichael gets to know the heart of Tommy Trang and discovers a new brand of patriotism that is gripping, contagious, and as deep as life itself.
