The modern U.S. military fights a Global War on Terror—a campaign for freedom and democracy worldwide. Through combat missions in Operation Enduring Freedom, in far-flung regions of the globe like Afghanistan, Iraq, the Philippines, and Northern Africa, and in humanitarian efforts that help spread American ideals and American compassion, our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard serve the entire free world.
They fight terror and tyranny with courage, pride, and honor. They use awe-inspiring weapons and bold tactics—but also kind words for hurt children, and helping hands for downtrodden neighbors. They are brave enough to risk their own lives in combat. They are American enough to win hearts and minds through hard work and generosity.
In America's Heroes: Stories From Today's Armed Forces, you will hear from these brave service members, in their own words. This is your exclusive invitation to personally explore the modern U.S. military—and a one-of-a-kind salute to today's armed forces.
Also included is a 32-page service scrapbook to record your personal record of military services.
