Erwin is the third generation of his family to be in the military. His father and grandfather proudly served before him. Before his grandfather left to go to war, his grandmother placed a small book into his coat's breast pocket. She made him promise to carry the book with him at all times. As long as he carried the book, she knew he would return to her safely. Once his grandfather returned safely from war, the book was then passed onto his father. When his father was done serving, it was now Erwin's turn to carry the book. Once Erwin is discharged from the service, a chance meeting with a young girl will forever change both of their lives.
