Stories In Uniform

Stories in Uniform by Reader's Digest

About The Book:
Stories in Uniform is a chronological retrospective of the best military pieces Reader's Digest has run; pieces that will make you weep, make your heart sing, inspire you, enrage you, and make you laugh. Beginning in World War I and continuing though to the war in Iraq, readers will follow soldiers into the trenches, peer in on emergency surgery taking place in the depths of the ocean, watch heroes carry the bodies of fallen brethren, trail Eisenhower for the three days leading up to D-Day, and be inspired as men and women rise above and beyond normal human limits to preserve our rights and save their friends. Stories include: •A moving memorial to D-Day •A tribute to one of the first African-Americans to serve as a Naval Officer •A pilot rescued after his F-16 is shot down •A soldier returns to the front after losing his foot in action •An American soldier who takes a big risk to save a dying Afghan girl. This book gives a complete perspective on the hell that is war, the love that grows from camaraderie, the pride from accomplishing the impossible, the humor that springs from the military bureaucracy, and more.

My Thoughts:
If you read my blog regularly, you will already know I love this book. I am a military brat, and come from along line of military men and women. This book is amazing. The stories are wonderful, and heartwarming, and make me proud to be an American! Great book for Memorial Day coming up!
