NASHVILLE — Berrien County author Bill Connell will sign his book, “Surrounded by Courage,” 2-3 p.m. Monday, March 17, Hardee’s, 620 S. Davis St.

“Surrounded by Courage” is a book about a military family that weaves its way through a career of adventure, danger, sacrifice and separation.

“This is not just another boot camp story,” according to Tate Publishing. “Connell writes about the anxiety, failure and success at boot camp, Fleet Marine Force, while aboard Navy ships, and in combat zones. He leads the reader through the storms of life, storms at sea, and storms of weather that threaten his family.”

In this second edition of “Surrounded by Courage,” Connell avoids offensive words and terms as he deals with reality of life.
