It Happened on the Way to War : A Marine's Path to Peace Paperback / softback
by Rye Barcott
This is a book about two forms of service that may appear contradictory: war-fighting and peacemaking, military service and social entrepreneurship.
In 2001, Marine officer-in-training Rye Barcott cofounded a nongovernmental organization with two Kenyans in the Kibera slum of Nairobi.
Their organization-Carolina for Kibera-grew to become a model of a global movement called participatory development, and Barcott continued volunteering with CFK while leading Marines in dangerous places.
It Happened on the Way to War is a true story of heartbreak, courage, and the impact that small groups of committed citizens can make in the world.
