At the high point of a soaring career in the US Army, Lt. Col. Mark Weber was tapped by General David Petraeus to serve in a high profile job within the Afghan Parliament as a military advisor. Within weeks a routine physical revealed stage IV intestinal cancer in the thirty-eight-year-old father of three.
