In Call Me an American, Captain Cao's triumphant journey of sacrifice and perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds, speaks to the enduring power and promise of the American dream. Deeply relatable and unapologetically honest, Captain Cao shares hard-fought lessons as a war refugee, combat veteran, and political candidate to remind readers that the fight to preserve our Republic begins with the same uniquely American values which are under attack today. From failure to humility, from faith to victory, Call Me an American, is an anthem to the imperfectly exceptional country that provided him refuge from the destruction of communism. From his childhood growing up in sub-Saharan Africa to his years fighting to preserve life as a Naval Officer in Special Operations, Captain Cao refutes the insidious narrative that the American dream is no longer accessible or achievable. Instead, he uses his gift of storytelling to expose the lies threatening meritocracy, equality, and individual liberty.
Industry Reviews
"The impassioned words in Call Me an American are reflective of a great patriot whose life journey is a triumph of the human spirit in the face of tremendous adversity. Hung Cao's journey--as a refugee, a United States Naval Officer on the battlefield, and now--should inspire every American to stand courageously for our great nation and her founding ideals in the face of an insidious, ideological agenda that seeks to destroy the American dream. Hung Cao reminds the reader of what is the exceptionalism that makes our country unique, that beacon of light to the world, which we all must fight for and defend. Call Me an American should be required reading for all, young and old alike.
--Mark R. Levin

"Hung Cao's remarkable and inspiring story of how his family survived the defeat in Vietnam, overcame the adversity of having to flee communism, and established themselves in a new land of opportunity and freedom is a stunning tribute both to his family and to the America he served in the military. Hung Cao is the kind of energetic, intelligent, and courageous leader who will make America a better country. His book is a testimonial to those qualities."
--Speaker Newt Gingrich

"Call Me an American is a brilliant clarion call for our nation's future! Hung Cao--a shining example of a new 'Greatest Generation' rising up from decades of war--has given us a vision for American greatness. This book is essential reading for all those who truly care about the future of the USA. This is a road map for us, not just to survive, but to thrive. As we love our nation, as we love our children, as we love our way of life: read and heed!"
--Lt. Col. Dave Grossman USA (Ret.), Author of On Killing, On Combat, and On Spiritual Combat

"Hung Cao's life is an example of the true American dream. From immigrant to decorated naval officer, Cao's story, along with his love of God and country, will inspire every reader! His life experience brings a fresh perspective on what it truly means to be a 'proud American.'"
--Pastor Gary Hamrick, Sr. Pastor, Cornerstone Chapel
