Our Book Title of the Year:

Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins

Why we chose this book:
Bob, Cavalry’s president, has a real tie to this author’s childhood and the experiences he faced. There are 3 important messages that the book delivers: 1. You have to work! Nothing is given to you. 2. Don’t be afraid to fail. 3. We all have a past that we are still working through! E+P=O.
