In recognition of homegrown talent, The Gleaner, Rutgers University–Camden’s student-run newspaper, hosted a book reading and signing for student authors 1st Lt. Mark A. Bodrog and Sean Lynch on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

A Rutgers–Camden graduate student and alumnus, Bodrog served as a first lieutenant and infantry officer in the U.S. Marines. The criminal justice major looks back at the critical role his unit played supporting Operation Enduring Freedom 10.1, in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in his new book, Second Platoon: Call Sign Hades: A Memoir of the Marines of the Combined Action Company, published by iUniverse.
