During a time of war, economic tribulation and a cultural shift in the American lifestyle, Jeremy Latchaw takes his experiences in the Global War on Terrorism, military and the Boy Scouts of America to shed light on what it truly means to be an American Patriot. By examining value systems that have made America great, from volunteer hours to character development, Jeremy is able to piece together what makes the American Patriot and how that patriot can in turn make the United States an even better place to live.
