About the Author

Robert H. Miller came to Portraits in Service after researching and writing Hidden Hell: The Story of My Father's POW Diary. A second edition of his book was published in 2011 by Patton Publishing. In 2010 he became executive director of the Patton Foundation in America, which focuses its efforts on putting into practice General George S. Patton's concerns for the welfare of American soldiers and their families. He has been a professional photographer for thirty-six years and is the recipient of several international awards. Andrew Wakeford was born in England, in 1949. He studied photography for two years at the Polytechnic of central London. He then worked as an assistant for an advertising photographer, and in 1974, became a freelance advertising photographer. He specializes in photographing people. He is now managing director of the Patton Foundation in Europe.

What a fantastic way to honor our heroes! My grandfather was a veteran in WWII and he served in the Battle of the Bulge under General Patton - which is why this book originally drew me in. The connection to Helen and her mission is truly inspiring. This book a great way to show the world what our armed forces put on the line every day. Often times, stories of war go untold; it's difficult to find people willing to share their experiences with you, so these stories are really special. Definitely something I will be sharing with my family and friends!

"Portraits" is front and center on our coffee table. It's a wonderful and personal remembrance of veterans across the years who have selflessly served their country. The closeup photos and vignettes are reminders of how much we all owe these heroes.

A book that propels the reader into action. One cannot read this and later just stand by as other attend to Veterans. You will NEVER be able to ignore out men and women in service again. You will feel and love more deeply after reading this.
