Heroes Among Us
Firsthand Accounts of Combat From America's Most Decorated Warriors in Iraq and AfghanistanPaperback - 2009
More than one million Americans have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, but fewer than 500 from this group have earned a Silver Star, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Distinguished Service Cross, or the Medal of Honour. These Americans have demonstrated extraordinary courage under fire - in the worst of circumstances. They 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 these extraordinary true stories of valour, honour and sacrifice.
