Earlier this week, we celebrated Memorial Day, a holiday dedicated to the memory of the women and men, and their families, who have sacrificed their lives for the security of our nation and the protection of the liberties and freedoms we Americans enjoy every day.
We can all agree that it takes a special caliber of person to devote their lives to protecting our freedoms. We believe it also takes a certain caliber of writer to depict these courageous men and women accurately in the pages of their military-based stories.
This week, our pick concerns our favorite military stories- those that center on the familiar model of soldier fighting the endless war in Afghanistan, the long fallen Rebel and Union soldiers who fought in our backyards hundreds of years ago, and the soldiers who sacrificed and bled on the fields of imagined lands.
We thank each and every one of you who have given your hearts and bodies to the protection of our country. We love and support you all.
