When Army Corporal Jon Dorsey was packing up before heading to Iraq, along with the equipment, he threw in something for himself: Plato's "Republic,""100 Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Jack Kerouac's "On the Road." We were intrigued by his selection and asked Cpl. Dorsey to tell us about his reading list on the phone from Baghdad, Iraq.
