Author, photographer, and humanitarian Eric Greitens grew up in a quiet suburb of St. Louis, but he's seen his share of the world's suffering. After graduating from Parkway North, Greitens headed off to Duke University and a life of public service. He taught English in China, and worked with refugees in places like Rwanda, Croatia and Bosnia, where he came to the realization that victims of war need both compassion and protection. After receiving graduate degrees from Oxford University, he became a Navy SEAL and fought in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2007, he returned to St. Louis and founded The Mission Continues, a national nonprofit that helps post-9/11 veterans continue to serve their communities. In this One on One Conversation, Greitens talks about his St. Louis childhood and the experiences that led him to write three books, including his new release for young adult readers, The Warrior's Heart: Becoming a Man of Compassion and Courage. Based on Greiten's best-selling memoir, The Heart and the Fist, The Warriors Heart is an inspiring "call to action" for young people who want to make a difference in the world.
