Soldier’s last message to sons inspires others

  • Mark Weber is a soldier dying from cancer
  • His book, "Tell My Sons" serves as a message to his boys
  • General Petraeus calls Mark Weber's book an inspiration

A dying soldier wrote a book to the three sons who must grow up without him. The book, "Tell My Sons," serves as a last message to his boys, but they also inspired one of America’s top military men during the toughest time in his life.

Mark Weber and his family join Raising America to talk about their family’s experience. We also hear from General David Petraeus about the impact the book made on his life.
