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.
