Military Appreciation Month

My Military Mom

"Lenny follows Connor for a school project and learns about his life with a military mom."

The Armed Forces Encyclopedia

"Together, the branches of the US military defend the nation at sea, in the air, and on land. This title explores the history of each military branch, how it has evolved over time, and what its role is today."

Pure Grit

"The story of American nurses serving in the Philippines when the Japanese attacked the islands on December 8, 1941."

Price of Duty

"Hailed as a hero, being considered for a Silver Star, Jake returns to his pro-military hometown and family injured physically and emotionally. Unsure if he can return to active duty, Jake is uncomfortable with the alternative. And he doesn't feel very heroic in the face of all that he witnessed-- the human cost of war."

A Patriot's Promise

"An inspiring memoir of promises kept, overcoming obstacles, and what it means to sacrifice for others, written by a Special Warfare Operator with the Air Force. When DT was injured in action, he lay in a coma for three months with third-degree burns on 80% of his body. He nearly died three times, and doctors predicted - if he survived - he would forever breathe with a respirator and never walk again. DT pushed through every limit to his full recovery, and he became the first 100% disabled veteran to re-enlist in the Air Force."

Walk In My Combat Boots

"Shares firsthand wartime accounts describing the courageous battlefield sacrifices of men and women from every branch and operational specialty of the U.S. military, from the Vietnam War through the present. These are the brutally honest stories usually only shared amongst comrades in arms. Here, in the voices of the men and women who've fought overseas from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, is a rare eye-opening look into what wearing the uniform, fighting in combat, losing friends and coming home is really like."
