This will be a night to remember for the Navy, Marine Corps, and the country. Our book became a reality through the efforts of people committed to a worthy mission: Helping Americans understand why veterans of the Long War are the nation’s most valued leaders. Come to the Navy Memorial, recognize the sacrifice of those lost on 9/11 and the wars abroad, and learn about our project. There will be an author discussion on the making of the book and a keynote speaker. The event coincides with the Patriot Week campaign, a week-long initiative that affords selected veteran charities the chance to earn 100% of author profits from September 8 - 15.
