"The authors have assembled a wonderful collection of reports of the extraordinary heroism of America's servicemen and women in the War on Terror, reminding us not only of the sacrifices of the men and women in uniform and their families, but of the enormous debt the rest of us owe them for the service that "We the People" have asked them to undertake for us."—General John W. Vessey, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Home of the Brave
"Riveting sagas of extraordinary heroism in combat by members of our Armed Forces during one of the most difficult, frustrating and critical conflicts in our history. A must read for all Americans who care about the future."—General P.X. Kelley, USMC (Ret.) 28th Commandant of the Marine Corps on Home of the Brave

This was a great tribute to the Men and Women who protect our Country. Finally, a book telling us what the media has failed to tell us. I would encourage everyone to read this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I read this book with enthusiasm, knowing and believing that heroes STILL exist. This book proved it to me. No one 'likes' war, and this book does not extol war. However, heroes are needed to win these wars. This book inspires Americans to try and be heroes. Not a bad goal at all!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Cap Weinberger, with Wynton Hall, have left us with the most amazing tribute in honor of those who are protecting our freedom today. Why are we not hearing these stories in the media? I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to hear how the wars with the Iraqi Islamofacist and the Afghanistan Taliban was really fought and won. Every student, young and old, should read this. I have never been more proud of our armed services.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As the wife of a deployed soldier, I have been longing for more literature like Home of the Brave, a book which focuses on the exceptional heroism, courage and bravery of those serving in our Armed Forces. I feel honored to have met, in the literary sense, the nineteen men and women featured in Home of the Brave. Their stories are nothing short of amazing. The experiences of these heroes are told in such vivid fashion that the reader is left feeling they are on the battlefield as events unfold. Sean Hannity says this book is one of the most important books written on the War on Terror. I couldn't agree more. Many of us have been clamoring for more literature like Home of the Brave. It's long overdue, but now we have it. Do yourself a favor, buy a copy of Home of the Brave, and tell your friends about it. On the back cover of Home of the Brave, you will find this passage: 'They are nineteen of the most highly decorated soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines in the United States military, and yet most Americans don't even know their names.' Let's do something to change that sad, unacceptable fact. I'm grateful to Wynton Hall, and the late Casper Weinberger, for writing this book. America needs to know more of her hereos.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
