Editorial Reviews

Review

It is so important for this generation to understand what past generations have sacrificed for their freedoms and this book teaches exactly that. --Brian Kilmeade, Fox & Friends co-host, Fox News Channel; Kilmeade and Friends host, FOX News Radio

Veterans: Heroes in Our Neighborhood makes us more aware and appreciative of our everyday surroundings. Though most veterans rarely acknowledge their military service, this book reveals these brave people who live and work among us. When author Valerie Pfundstein, who lives nearby with her family and whose husband, a firefighter in the engine company at the same fire house at which I was captain told me she was inspired to honor family, neighbors, and friends who are veterans, I knew it was also a crucial opportunity to teach the next generation what it means to serve our country. The people commemorated in this book did, some of them having made the ultimate sacrifice so others could live free. --John T. Vigiano, Sr. United States Marine Corps, 1957 1962/1963 1966; Captain, Fire Department of New York, 1962 1998

As a child, my father proudly shared stories of relatives who had served America during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and we had family friends who were WWI veterans. When I came of age, most of my family, friends, and I served during World War II. Later, two of my children served in the military. We all owe so much to the millions of men and women who, through the years, have helped to keep us safe and free. I m so pleased that Valerie Pfundstein has written this book, which will help young people understand the service and sacrifices made by other Americans. No one should ever be forgotten especially our service people who have kept this country the Home of the Brave. --Edna Coby, World War II veteran

From the Author

Few of us will ever witness an act of valor, yet we walk among heroes who perform them every day--not in military uniform or wearing their medals, but while serving our communities as teachers, firefighters, mail carriers. Veterans are our neighbors, family, and friends. Although humble, these heroes deserve our appreciation for their service to our country. I hope this book will encourage readers of all ages to enjoy our freedoms and to thank the men and women who have preserved those freedoms for all of us.
