Publisher Comments:

From the andlt;Iandgt;New York Times andlt;/Iandgt;bestselling author of andlt;Iandgt;Heroes Provedandlt;/Iandgt;, a moving collection of and#8220;straightforward, honest testimonials to the courage American troops display on and off the battlefieldand#8221; (andlt;Iandgt;Kirkus Reviewsandlt;/Iandgt;).andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;For more than a dozen years, combat-decorated Marine Oliver North and his award-winning documentary team from FOX News Channeland#8217;s andlt;Iandgt;War Storiesandlt;/Iandgt; traveled to the frontlines of the War on Terror to profile the dedicated men and women who serve our nation. This time, he follows them from the battlefield to the homefront and finds extraordinary inspiration in their triumph over life-altering adversity.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;In this new volume of his andlt;Iandgt;New York Timesandlt;/Iandgt; bestselling American Heroes series, North describes the courage, commitment, and strength of those who serveand#8212;and those who love them. The term and#8220;selfless devotionand#8221; may be a clichand#233; to manyand#8212;but not to the men and women on the pages of this book. Their stories resound with bravery, a warrior ethos, and spiritual strength that will encourage us all.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Heroes are people who knowingly place themselves at risk for the benefit of others. Since the terror attack of 9-11-01, more than 2 million young Americans have volunteered to serve in difficult and dangerous places. No military force in history has been asked to do more than those who have served and sacrificed in this long fight. They are American heroes. So too are their loved ones here at home. These are their stories.
