Young and old alike are fascinated with super heroes-those amazing men and women with extra-ordinary talents and a strong sense of justice. Yet super heroes do not always wear capes; often they wear combat boots and camouflage. Engagingly written and jam packed with illustrations, this book will introduce your children to real heroes, the men and women of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. From the Civil War through Operation Iraqi Freedom, children will be spellbound with stories of bravery in the lives of these courageous soldiers and gain a greater appreciation of the freedom these valiant folks have secured for each of us. A sampling of the true stories told: Sgt. Alvin York, P.O. Michael Thornton, Seal Team 3 Chief Chris Kyle, Capt. George Hamilton and many others-over 40 total real life heroes are included. Also includes an overview of each military branch and medals of honor. 112 pgs, pb ~ Deanne
