After the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, First Sergeant Daniel Hendrex was dispatched along with his unit, Dragon Company, to Husaybah, a small town bordering Syria in the Sunni-dominated Al Anbar province of Iraq. It was at this checkpoint, amidst relentless attacks, that Daniel and his men found the most effective ally of the war effort in the most unlikely of sources.

In December 2003, a skinny Iraqi kid, about fourteen years old, approached one of the soldiers at the border and said simply, "Arrest me." Jamil as he was called, claimed to have valuable information about the insurgency, but First Sergeant Hendrex was skeptical—especially when the boy announced that the man he wanted to turn in was his own father. The story that unfolds is one of heartbreaking tragedy, remarkable courage, and unprecedented resiliency, as this child risks everything he knows for a chance at freedom. And after the boy saves countless lives. First Sergeant Hendrex makes it his personal mission to return the boy to safety.

A Soldier's Promise is the astonishing tale of two countries and two very different kinds of people joining together against terror and tyranny, and of the young man who, against all odds, gave Dragon Company what they desperately needed—hope.

First Sergeant Daniel Hendrex joined the Army in 1990 and has served in Operation Desert Storm (Iraq), Operation Desert Shield (Kuwait), Continue Hope (Mogadishu, Somalia), Intrinsic Action (Kuwait), Joint Forge (Bosnia), Joint Guardian (Kosovo/Macedonia), Noble Eagle (Tooele. Utah), and Iraqi Freedom I and III. He currently lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his wife, Christina, and daughter, Sydney, and continues to work in the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Carson.

Lee Sellars has appeared on television in The Sopranos, Third Watch, Law & Order, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, ER, Early Edition , and Chappelle's Show . His films include Tenderness, Lime Vegas, Love The Hard Way , and Groundhog Day . Theater credits include The Pillowman, Of Mice & Men, Gun Shy, Ghosts on Fire , and Buying Time .
