A U.S. Army major who served in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom presents 29 true stories of courage from the frontlines of the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Over one million Americans have served in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past four years, but fewer than 500 from this group have earned a Silver Star, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Distinguished Service Cross, or the Medal of Honor. Those who have been awarded these distinguished honors all demonstrated an extraordinary courage under fire in the worst of circumstances.
These Americans come from all branches of the military. They also come from all over the country and all walks of life, representing the entire spectrum of races and creeds. But what unites them are their deeds of consummate bravery, beyond the call of duty. Heroes Among Us tells their extraordinary true stories of valor, honor, and sacrifice.
Heroes Among Us transcends politics and ideology and will inspire us all." (General Richard Myers, former chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff)
"This book is an extraordinary testimonial to both heroism and humanity. These accounts are powerful reminders of why Americans in uniform deserve our respect, our support, and our gratitude." (Senator Joe Lieberman)
