Absolutely Awesome and Heartwarming Nov 30, 2006
If you never really appreciated a veteran, you definitely will after reading this book. This book has so many wonderful true stories about American veterans. Some of us never realize what they have to go through. I loved the whole book - it's hard for me to say which stories were my favorites.
I Loved It Mar 26, 2006
This book was sent to me from a dear friend and I love this book so much. I think all Veterans will love it and heck anyone should. It is a book I will cherish always!
Stirring Mar 23, 2006
This book was given to me by a good friend. He thought I, as a Vietnam vet, would identify with some of the stories. It is one of the absolutely most enjoyable books I have ever read. I even slowed down my usual reading speed to savor the stories . Each day, in the sunshine of my patio, I read two or three stories. Every story got my full attention. I even found one story about a man I knew in the army. I adamently recommend this book to any veteran.
EXCELLENT - MUST READ ! + UPDATE Mar 19, 2006
A truly wonderful book with numerous short tales about veterans. Perhaps I am prejudiced, being a retired USN radioman. These stories will uplift your spirits tremendously. Reading of the selfless actions of veterans throughout our nations history may add a new dimension to your life. What impressed me besides the shear joy of reading these stories is that each and every one was new to me. I suggest you keep some tissues nearby, this book will truly tug on your emotions. I've sent this book to 3 others so far. There's a huge series of Chicken Soup books. They all seem to be written with the same care as this one.
At the start of 2007 I had one of those V8 moments and decided to start a mission for myself. It would be pretty easy. Simply it is to hand out a copy of this marvelous book to any veterans I might run across. Just a simple "thank you for your service" gift. I carry three in my car's glove box. I usually order 10 at a time here. So far I've handed out 50 copies. I really get into this! I was beside a guy in a truck at a red light with a VietNam decal on the bumper. I yelled over and asked if it was his. When he nodded yes I asked him to pull over I wanted to give him something. He pulled into an animal vet parking lot. Give him one, he had been in the USAF. I typed up a short note and staple them inside the cover telling a little about my service and what my mission was. Now that I have blown my own horn way too much I would like to toss out an idea. How about doing a similar thing where you live? You meet the greatest folks and feel super when you've handed another one out.
