This is a wonderful book that reminds us all of how powerful the patriotism WAS. It encouraged me to remember we must still have that same patriotism for our nation. I purchased this book for my son, who is serving in the USN. We live in a great nation only obtained thru the sacrifice of brave men and women and this books speaks of what that sacrifice entailed. Get it, savor it, and keep the message close to your heart. You won't be dissappointed!
