Oliver North's AMERICAN HEROES series just keeps getting better. This is the best so far, a powerful reminder that an entire family serves. The heroes are beyond the battlefield and include those waiting at home. I felt a personal connection with each story Colonel North told and came away wanting more. It was heartful prose and I know the stories told in this book are representative of the many who have served and continue to serve. We must never forget freedom is never free, especially for the families of our service members. This is a great gift for any patriot.

Excellent recount of heroes and their resiliency. I personally know the Carpenters, two of the people profiled in the book. They are outstanding Americans! Thanks Ollie. Jerry

Awesome read.

I just finished reading AMERICAN HEROES: ON THE HOMEFRONT by Col. Oliver North and Bob Hamer. Its an eye opening book of stories about what military families endure when their families are away from home; the worries, the fears, and the concerns they have. The book gives a unique perspective as to the physical and emotional struggles our wounded heroes endure from the time they are wounded on the battlefield continuing in the hospital and in physical therapy. Read the story of Trey and Lindsey Humphrey. If you are like me you will get emotional reading it, but yet you will come away with positive feelings, an upbeat attitude and positive feelings. Read the story of Leslie Smith. Thank you to our brave military, their families, the doctors. Thank you to Col. North and Bob Hamer for your service to our country and for writing this masterpiece.

This heart wrenching book opened my eyes as to what our young men and women in the U.S military are facing overseas. Seeing what these young kids are enduring when they return home is painful and yet at the same time they are showing such determination.
Every American should pick this book up and then they will realize the sacrifices that our U.S military makes for us.

This book should somehow be required reading so folks will know about the personal sacrifices made by a select few and their families to make this a safer world.
