Editorial Reviews

Army Times - Off Duty
The immortal question: "I wonder who this dump is named for?"

Wonder no more. Marine Corps brat, Air Force veteran and Army spouse Linda D. Swink spent four years researching and compiling "In Their Honor: The Men Behind the Names of Our Military Installations" to provide answers.

The book is a unique reference source for biographical data on the people - some famous, many obscure - who did something notable enough to have a military facility named after them.
