Ever since he was a child, Antonio J. Webb, M.D had to find it in himself to overcome what promised to be a very desolate future. Growing up in the heart of Shreveport, Louisiana, he was constantly surrounded by influences of the very worst sort including gangs, violence and drugs. From a younger brother who served juvenile life for armed robbery to a mother whose addiction to crack cocaine landed her in jail multiple times, Antonio’s family was split in half between members in and out of prison. Not only that, but several of his close friends were killed and others began serving 10+ years in prison for crimes they committed as teenagers.
The statistics for Antonio were grim. Chances were that he’d end up like most of his friends and family. But then, to the surprise of all, he graduated high school with honors, and a whole new world of opportunity lit up before him.

It pays tribute to the bravery of a family with a 165 year tradition of service to their country.
It reenacts the understated heroism of valiant men who were sent off fourteen thousand miles from their homeland to battle all the harsh elements of nature and the life-threatening attacks of hostile enemy forces. In the hopes of reminiscing his father’s life in the military, Grey writes this historical novel to bring to light the significant efforts of war veterans whose struggles may not have been recognized by many.
Little is known about the CBI Theatre. This was even referred to as the Forgotten Front due mainly to the fact that the men who fought in this zone had received very little amount of supplies and support from the government. The soldiers did not have enough provisions and had limited supply of rations. A man named Sam Huber was a part of this group. In his son’s effort to bring to life his father’s accomplishments not only as a soldier, but also as a family man, Sam’s story is told in this powerful work that will inevitably stir readers. KICKER inspires readers to appreciate and honor the courage, strength and endurance of war veterans who risked their lives and the welfare of their families in order to fight for the very freedom that is now being enjoyed by millions.
