Overview

Beneficiary of being allowed to live in the greatest nation that has ever existed, the American citizen enjoys individual rights and freedom unmatched in the world. These rights and freedom are guaranteed to the American citizen by the most unique document in history, the Constitution of the United States of America. These rights and freedoms have been guarded and protected by veterans of the United States Army, Navy, Coastguard, Air Force and Marines; veterans too often overlooked and forgotten.
America’s Heroes: Untold Stories of Honor, Courage and Sacrifice chronicles the stories of some of those veterans so that the average citizen can appreciate the extent of the sacrifices many of our bravest men and women have made to insure personal freedom and individual rights. The stories in this volume and in the forthcoming volumes of America’s Heroes are the result of interviews conducted by former Marine corporal Scot King, who has dedicated his life to improving the plight of our combat-affected veterans and their families. With the assistance of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, of which he is a member, Scot has undertaken as a mission a bicycle ride of some 20,000 miles to the state capital of each of the contiguous forty-eight states where he will interview veterans of America’s wars: World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. These stories will be chronicled in the America’s Heroes series. Volume II is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2012.
Scot’s ride will take the better part of two years and the rich lode of gripping stories from the veterans themselves in their own words, or in the words of their family as many made the ultimate sacrifice, will yield a fascinating series of Americas greatest: the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. Author's royalties and portion of publisher's profits donated to Remember the Wounded Ride, a non-profit organization to help wounded veterans.
