Brothers Forever

The Enduring Bond between a Marine and a Navy SEAL that Transcended Their Ultimate Sacrifice

By Tom Sileo, By Tom Manion

Brothers Forever tells the intimate and personal story of how two Naval academy roommates—US Marine Travis Manion and US Navy SEAL Brendan Looney—defined a generation's sacrifice after 9/11, and how their loved ones overcame heartbreak to carry on in their memory. It is a remarkable story of friendship, family, and war.
