Home of the Brave : Honoring the Heroes in the War on Terror
They are eighteen of the most highly decorated soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines in the United States military, yet most Americans don't even know their names. In this riveting account, former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger and Wynton C. Hall retell the stories of jaw-dropping heroism and hope coming out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Based on candid personal interviews, "Home of the Brave" takes readers beyond the bullets and battles into the hearts and minds of the men and women who are fighting terrorists overseas. These are the true life stories of soldiers who risked everything to save lives and defend freedom. Giving an in-depth and personal touch to the War on Terror, these real life heroes remind us of American history's most enduring lesson: Ours would not be the land of the free were it not also the home of the brave.
