About the Author
Helene Ensign Maw's patriotism coupled with a writing talent and a penchant for accuracy has come together in her first book Freedom is for Those Willing to Defend It -- Stories of Men in War.
After retiring from the business and legal world, she began writing in order to capture and publish the sacrifices that men in war have made for our country, their respect for the flag and their faith in dire times. Dedicated to those who underprize liberty, she has recorded historical experiences so that others may remember and honor the sacrifices made for them and keep vivid in their hearts that liberty has its price.
Abandoning a court reporting career ,which she was pursuing in Jackson, Wyoming, she chose to stay home after marrying a widower with five young and teenage children, and experience mothering. A Communication major, she attended the University of Utah. The specialty of verbatim court reporting required two-year schooling at Denver's Mile High Court Reporting school.
Helene and her husband presently reside in the mountain community of Kamas, Utah (near the Olympic venue of Park City), in a log home that she and her husband designed and built adjacent to a mountain stream.

I rate this book a 5+, and NOT just because one of the stories (and the first review) was written by my father. Neither he nor the author of the book has asked me to write this review. In fact I stumbled across this review site by accident while looking to see whether the book was selling on Amazon.com, yet.
The title states that "freedom is for those willing to defend it". Especially in these uncertain and troubling times, we must all be willing to stand up for, support, and defend freedom, AND to understand(as best we can) AND appreciate the sacrifices that have been made by those who have actually defended the principle of freedom by risking their lives and often endured great suffering and deprevation. If this book doesn't put a tear in your eye and a lump in your throat on Veterans Day, nothing will.
