Scotty SmileyThis is a truly transparent look into the life and thoughts of Captain Scotty Smiley, who was injured in Iraq and lost sight in both eyes. His faith, his determination, or the love for his wife, I am not sure which shines brighter. This story is an inspiration for us all!

Hope Unseen is available online here.

Here are some praises:

“Scotty Smiley’s story is one all Americans should hear. It will inspire them in tough times and help them through some of the difficult challenges they face in life.”
— Senator Bob Dole

“I have known Scotty Smiley for nearly ten years–since the beginning of his friendship with my son Edward at West Point. He was a role model for our family before his injury, and his impact on us has only grown since that day in Mosul. Scotty has an incredible story to tell and God is using him in a remarkable way. All of the Grahams look forward to reading and sharing Scotty’s story with millions.”
— Franklin Graham

“Scotty Smiley is an American Hero! Scotty and Tiffany have been an inspiration to the Duke Community, to Team USA Basketball, and to me personally. He shared his story with our Olympic Gold Medal– winning basketball team, and now he shares it with all of us to show how character ultimately wins.”
— Coach Mike Krzyzewski
