As the fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq continue, retired General Tommy Franks speaks out. His famous quote "ain't this a great country?" has landed him wide-spread recognition and a book deal.
The book, "American Soldier", is now on bookshelves and is also the reason the retired four-star general stopped in Colorado Springs as part of his book tour.
The lines were long with many hoping for his signature to grace the inside cover of their copy.
The 568-page best-seller gives his account of the country's battles in the last 3 years. He also reveals some things he wished were done differently.
