Craig's military novels examine the costs and consequences of warfare on the soldiers who serve, their families, and the civilians caught in the cross-fire. This is military literature that captures what happens in the grey zone of a combat environment to both soldiers and noncombatants. "Craig is the literary voice for those who served our nation in the War on Terrorism." - Bernie Edelman, author of "Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam."
Craig's writing has been recognized with a Gold Medal from the Military Writer's Society of America (One Weekend A Month). He received the first place in fiction "Golden Nib" award from the Chesapeake Bay Writers, and a statewide award in fiction by the Virginia Writers Club in 2023. His military novels are often cited as revealing the ground truth lived by our soldiers. In his military career he is a two time recipient of the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal for Valor for action in Iraq.
