Vets book supports independent bookstores, and vice versa
In the Shadow of Greatness is a not-for-profit book written to share stories of leadership, service, & sacrifice of veterans of the nation's longest wars.
They were walking to class on 9/11 when the World Trade Center and Pentagon were attacked. These midshipmen graduated from the United States Naval Academy into a nation at war, the first class to do so since Vietnam. The men and women of the class of 2002 lost their youth to a decade of war and their innocence on battlefields in distant places. In the Shadow of Greatness honors that service and the sacrifices of those comrades in arms. All author proceeds go to support veterans' and servicemembers' charities. This is more than a book: This is a movement to support veteran organizations and honor the service of millions after 9/11.
