The Disabled Veteran's StoryThe sacrifices our OUR WARRIORS AND THEIR FAMILIES MAKE EVERYDAY STANDING GUARD AT HOME AND AROUND THE WORLD FOR THE FREEDOM WE ENJOY
This book shares the heartfelt, compelling stories of legendary sacrifices of our veterans and their families. Urged to share these stories by the veterans, their family members, and caretakers themselves, Miguel Reece has collected life stories from people you need to know. Their chapters in our history should never be forgotten: the spouse who had to start over seven different times following their military member; the daughter who changed schools nine times in twelve years; the shattered dream of one of the first female pilots and her struggles with the glass ceiling; the amazing Bataan death march survivor; the man who volunteered for the draft as a way out to pave the way for his family; the Mom’s struggles with a son with a traumatic brain injury; POWs from WWII and Korea; an Ohio National Guardsman at Kent State; survivors, fighters, and patriots from Pearl Harbor, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Sacrifices is just not a word—it is a committed act of great value in the line of service to the world and deserves our action and acknowledgement.

Dear Major Reece:
Thank you for sharing your book with us. We have no greater honor than working with our troops, veterans and their families. Each day, we are moved by the committment and dedication of veterans like you and we can all draw inpiration from stories of courage, strength and perserverance.
Thank you for the book, Miguel and for your service to our Nation.
We wish you all the best.
My Father was a WW2 veteran and these stories were so touching and educational it truly helped me to understand what he went through and that he had PTSD. Knowing what heroes these veterans are was moving and very much left me wanting to appreciate their efforts more. I will thank every person in uniform from now on!!!- Judy Whitman
This is a remarkable book for any American to read. This book has real life events included that no one should forget. The title speaks for itself and should be remembered by all. All I can say is wow!- Kenneth Bracewell
