About The Book

Publication Date: December 21, 2021

Have you ever been lost—really lost?

Danny and Jackie answer this question in Marines Don’t Cry with stories of death to life, deep sorrow to joy, darkness to light, and freedom in Christ.

Danny recounts his early life in Spanish Harlem and describes conversion from a life of drugs and “the fast lane” to one consumed with knowing and serving God. This makes his journey of walking more than 52 million steps on six continents for children and world peace such an incredible story.

Marines Don’t Cry is about the transformational power of God’s love: how Danny found his calling and is delivering the message of Christ at all costs.

Since 1996, he has prayed and walked over 52,000, 000 steps on six continents for children and world peace. During his journeys, Garcia met with dignitaries all over the world, ministering to the famous and to the poorest of the poor. Danny made presentations to Kings/royals, Presidents, and other world leaders, to include four Presidents of the USA, several Prime Ministers of other countries, the Pope, Mother Teresa, Ambassadors and various eminent personalities and multilateral organizations. Garcia began his journey as a personal commitment to peace and children and continued walking and raising funds for multiple charitable organizations.

  1. Great excerpt, Marines Don’t Cry sounds like a very interesting book and I am looking forward to reading it! Thanks for sharing it with me and have a splendid day!

  2. Hello Dayna Linton, Goddess Fish Promotions, and @Eva Millien, thanks for having us on your blog. I checked in earlier on my cell phone, and sometimes it just doesn’t catch. Dayna, I appreciate the paragraph about you, and our book is being translated into Spanish. Curious, any pointers on self-publishing in another language, perhaps for distribution in Latin America?
