Copies of Coleman's own hometown hero Shilo Harris, are now available for checkout at the library. This memoir cover' s the story of Shilo' s devastating injury when a Humvee hit an IED while on patrol in Iraq in February of 2007. In that blast he lost his ears, part of his nose, some fingers and over a third of the skin on his body. He also lost three of his best friends. Steel Will chronicles a journey of pain and suffering, but also strength, persistence, love and resiliency of the human spirit. It is a raw and rugged account of a man brought to his knees by war, yet one who is full of gratitude for the journey, which brought him closer to his family, to God and helped him become the kind of man he always wanted to be.
Plans are being made for Shilo to present a program at the Coleman Public Library on November 1st, 2014. Time and other events will be listed soon on this site and local news media.
