Since this country was first being fought for by a ragged group of citizen soldiers armed with little more than courage and a fierce desire for freedom, generations of American families have watched loved ones bravely choose to serve this nation through military service. Seeking neither riches, nor glory, nor conquered lands-they have bravely risked and given all so that we and others might enjoy freedom and justice. Whether on foreign shores or serving within our own homeland, they represent the very best of what American can be. These pages are filled with facts, reminders, and expressions of patriotism which reflect the ideals and nobility of those who have served, and are currently serving this country.

Concepts such as patriotism and family values have been mocked, struck down, and absolutely belittled in the past few years, according to this volume. The clear waters of right and wrong have been muddied until younger generations no longer seem to know right from wrong, but are mentally trapped in a murky gray area of "if it feels good do it." This book by Mike Radford celebrates America, its families, its veterans, and its Christian heritage. Stories of great Americans and reminders of what makes America great are included here, inspiring all of us to return to the things that make this the greatest nation on earth.
