GET IT ON
“Three words. That’s all it took. I was writing a letter home to my mom when the call rang out across the American compound: ‘Get it on!‘ And just like that, the course of my life changed forever.”
Decorated U.S. military veteran-turned-country musician Keni Thomas gives a personal account of his heart-wrenching experiences in the chaotic 1993 Battle of Mogadishu to express a unique set of leadership lessons and inspired view of our greater purpose. Get It On! reminds readers “that we, as individuals, do indeed matter, that we are anything but ordinary, fully capable of carrying out life-changing assignments at any level and in any situation. We can make a difference in this world.”
Carrying a guitar now rather than a rifle, Keni also shares stories from the stage of the Grand Ole Opry to overseas concerts for active soldiers, always passionate about the battle that “still shapes my thoughts on a daily basis” and eager to encourage the absolute best in those who are willing to answer whatever call God places on their lives.
