Presidio Press 2000 0891417168 / 9780891417163 Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. Collectible history, 2000 Presidio Press. This is the first bio of legendary warrior, lover, drinker and WWll hero Gregory Boyington. Blessed with luck and stubborn independence, he lived a life that went beyond what one would expect in the most imaginative fiction. He became a Marine aviation cadet in 1936 but because of chronic indebtedness and unconventional behavior, he was "encouraged" to resign. But, before the Corps could kick him out, he signed up for a volunteer group training pilots to help the Chinese with their war with Japan. Shortly after, he returned to the U.S. and with fighter pilots in desperate need, the Corps grudgingly let him back in and promptly sent him to the South Pacific. After several setbacks, including a broken leg acquired in a drunken brawl, Boyington put together a group of fighter pilots and was fast dubbed The Black Sheep squadron. Their heroics were fast recognized and after finally being shot down and held prisoner, Boyington eventually returned to the U.S. with a hero's welcome and a Medal of Honor.

For Love of Country  What Our Veterans Can Teach Us About Citizenship, Heroism, and Sacrifice, Howard Schultz  Rajiv Chandrasekaran
12 Howard Schultz Rajiv Chandrasekaran For Love of Country What Our Veterans Can Teach Us About Citizenship, Heroism, and Sacrifice
Knopf Publishing 2014 1101874457 / 9781101874455 Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. This book is a celebration of the extraordinary courage, dedication, and sacrifice of this generation of American veterans on the battlefield and their equally valuable contribution on the home front. Because so few of us now serve in the military, our men and women in uniform have become strangers to us. We honor them, but hardly know their true sacrifice. The authors of this book honor acts of uncommon valor in Iraq and Afghanistan, including an Army Sgt. who repeatedly runs through gunfire to save the lives of his wounded comrades; 2 Marines who sacrifice their lives to halt an oncoming truck bomb and protect 33 of their brothers, and other acts of heroism. We also see how veterans make vital contributions once they return home, drawing on their leadership, and commitment skills. The book is full of powerful stories demonstrating just how indebted we are to those who protect us and serve.

But, no other chief executive in American history exercised such tenacity and hands-on shaping of military strategy.
