The Prologue starts of with the ultimate question,"What does it mean to truly love another?"
John as a little kid struggled with finding the balance between himself and his father. In a conversation with Savannah, She mentions that she thinks John's distant father has Asperger's, which would explain why John's dad is distant, and is fairly only interested in his gigantic coin collection. Before he departs, he promises Savannah he'll marry herwhen he completes his deployment. They begin to grow apart and eventually Savannah sends him a letter that says she is in love with someone else. John was heartbroken and stops communicating with her. A little while later, John's father died and left John all the coins from his coin collection that is worth a lot of money. While John is home for his fathers’ funeral, he decides to go visit Savannah.It turns out she married her best friend she grew up with,Tim, who John became friends with when he met Savannah. Tim has Melanoma and there is nothing the doctors can do anymore. Savannah wants to send him to a better hospital that can run experiments and tests on him but she can't afford it. Before John leaves to go back to Iraq, he donates all the money his father's coin collection was worth toTim's fund. He never spoke to Savannah again and goes on living his life in the army.
