"I met Marine Sgt. John Peck, a quadruple amputee who has received a double arm transplant, at Walter Reed in 2017. Today, it was my honor to welcome John (HERO) to the Oval, with his wonderful wife Jessica. He also wrote a book that I highly recommend, Rebuilding Sergeant Peck."--President Donald Trump

"Rebuilding Sergeant Peck is an absolutely riveting, powerful, and inspirational story of a young Marine wounded in combat. Never have I been more moved by the will, strength, or perseverance of a warrior whose actions epitomize the term "combat mindset." Although it is a great tragedy anytime anyone in the military is wounded or killed defending our country, Sergeant Peck's story is beyond belief.
He not only suffered from injuries that included a TBI and losing his memory, all of his limbs, and then his marriage, but after a great deal of treatment he did everything in his ability to deploy again! Sergeant Peck epitomizes the true meaning of never ever giving up despite all odds. This story should be read by all military personnel and anyone who would like to be reminded of just how powerful a person can be when his or her soul is on fire."--Don D. Mann, Navy SEAL (ret), New Your Times bestselling author of Inside SEAL Team SIX

"What I admire about John Peck is his attitude. We're pulling for you John Peck."--Gayle King on CBS This Morning

"I met Sgt. John Peck in the fall of 2010; he has been an inspiration to me ever since. John has rebuilt his body and soul, and his is a compelling story of determination, persistence, and service.... That's why I believe John's book will inspire any-one regardless of whether they serve in the military or not."--Gary Sinise, actor, author of the bestselling Grateful American, and founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation

"Marine Sgt. John Peck is a survivor, but he is also a thriver. His story still makes me smile. I am so grateful that he entered our lives."--from the foreword by Jennifer Griffin, FOX News National Security correspondent

"The measure of a man is his heart and head. John Peck went through hell to learn--and prove--how true that really is."--James Carafano, director of the Foreign Policy Studies and Vice President of the Institute for International Studies at The Heritage Foundation.
