Award Winning Best Seller ‘Street Fight in Iraq’ Honored in December’s ‘Soldier of Fortune Magazine’


Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2007

Lt. Col. Neil Levin USMC, (Ret), CEO and Publisher, Leatherneck Publishing, Div. of Levin Publishing Group, LLC, today announced that Soldier of Fortune Magazine, the elite and definitive publication for the professional military, government, and commercial trooper, honors Leatherneck Publishing in their forthcoming December 2007 issue. It features significant excerpts from this best seller and award winning book. Says Robert K. Brown, Editor/Publisher of Soldier of Fortune, “‘Street Fight in Iraq’ chronicles and exposes what is really going on over there. I felt it necessary to bring this important resource to the attention of our 150,000 readers.” Established in 1975, Soldier of Fortune Magazine is the industry leader in military and protective services publications.

If you wonder what it’s like fighting with the US Marine Corps Expeditionary Forces in Iraq, you are in for a hair raising ride when you read Leatherneck Publishing’s latest book release by Gunnery Sergeant, now 1st Sgt Patrick Tracy. A seasoned 19-year Marine Corps Warrior of many battles, GySgt Tracy takes you second by second on heart pounding, breath stopping missions through the streets of Ramadi seeking out the terrorists who hide in the shadows of inhumanity. Around the next corner awaits a surprise ambush, a massive fire fight or a little child wired for your touch. GySgt Tracy is a master at describing each moment as he lived it. He recorded each event in his personal mission log over a seven month tour of duty in one of the hottest combat zones, Ramadi, Iraq.

“Street Fight in Iraq” relates with great candor the unvarnished realities of dealing with day to day combat in and around Ramadi. You will be shocked, fascinated, outraged and frustrated when you read about the fight for Democracy and Peace in Iraq. This book is about Marines who made the journey to combat and the unbelievable events that followed. Called, “down and dirty,” the language is harsh, the writing brutally honest and the message clear. This is a definite “must read” for military and civilians alike. This book is available directly from Leatherneck Publishing Online Bookstore,

“Our mission is to provide a venue to every military person, Marine, Army, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard with a story to tell,” says Levin. “We have a commitment to not only publish, but to help each of our authors realize their potential to become the best.

Despite Economy, Financial Advisor to Affluent Jeff Christenson Uses Innovative Methods, Team to Preserve Wealth, Build Award Winning Practice


Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 30, 2010

With over fifteen years experience working with high-level clients (successful entrepreneurs, real estate developers and well known entertainers, to name a few), Jeff Christenson knows a thing or two about managing substantial wealth. As the President and Founder of Christenson Wealth Management LLC, a comprehensive, private wealth management firm dealing exclusively with high net-worth clients, Jeff has an unparalleled reputation for assisting individuals and families in achieving their financial goals.

Jeff was recently recognized for his considerable achievements with the Advisor Achievement Award from Multi Financial Securities Corporation (Multi-Financial). This special award was given to Christenson for increasing his business over the last 12 months despite the challenges in the economy.

This is a fitting honor for Jeff, who continues to exemplify what it means to be a successful advisor and a trusted guide for his clients, said Multi-Financial President and CEO Brett Harrison. It was a challenging 12 months, but his efforts produced outstanding results.

This is the second honor for Christenson in the last few months, as he was also recently listed among WORTH Magazines national list of Leading Wealth and Legal Advisors. Christenson contributed multiple full-page editorial features to WORTH as part of the program, which educates the most affluent readers in the United Sates on diverse, sophisticated wealth strategies.

Jeff and his highly accredited team realize that these clients have unique needs, and are solidly committed to meeting and exceeding their objectives. Investment portfolios are customized based on the individual situation of each client. These clients benefit from a variety of investment strategies which can help maximize their return and which can help to keep their money in a safe place.

People dont come to us to make them rich; they come to us help keep them rich.

When someone has serious money, they need a serious money manager. If theyre going to put their trust and their financial assets in someones hands, capability is paramount. Smart, sound strategies and a holistic approach to wealth have helped Christensons clients keep a healthy bottom line, despite disaster in the economy.

It is said that 80% of money managers cant beat the S&P 500, and theyre probably right. On the other hand, that means 20% do, and those managers are where we focus our attention and efforts, looking for ways to shepherd wealth with partners who have a proven track record of performance and integrity. My clients demand the best results with the lowest risk, and thats what I look for every day.

Christenson also provides his clients with special access to a unique team of top-tier professionals with national reputations to help his clients preserve their wealth in related and often overlooked areas including Asset Protection, estate planning and life insurance needs, executive compensation and business succession planning and many other areas of concern to clients in his demographic. I cant be an expert at everything, but I can assemble a team of experts, and thats been part of our success. Investment performance is for naught if my clients lose money to a lawsuit, estate taxes or other sources of spoilage. We try to make sure they have all the expert resources they need, says Christenson, who also regularly partners with other advisors across the country to help them bring the same level of service and these innovative strategies to their own clients.

Christenson is a resident of Paradise Valley, Arizona with his unbelievably supportive wife and their two children, a four-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son. He also serves on the Board of Directors for national child abuse prevention and treatment group Child Help USA, a cause he describes as one of the greatest joys of his life. Its an honor which came through his professional career just another reason to love the business. My clients are the greatest people in the world, Jeff says, Literally.
