In today’s episode I talk to author Mark Greenblatt about his book Valor: Unsung Heroes From Iraq, Afghanistan, and The Homefront. In his book Mark highlights nine servicemen who displayed bravery above and beyond the call of duty. His stated goal with this book is to introduce Americans to the “Audie Murphy’s” of this generation.
- Why the American public knows so little of our modern day war heroes
- Riveting stories of heroic action in combat
- Why one war vet still sends money anonymously to a family in a remote village in Afghanistan
- What we can learn from the men in Mark’s book
- And much more!
You can visit Mark’s website and write an email directly to the men (or the families of the men) highlighted in the book. Mark says they’d love to hear from you.
