About the Book: This book is a touching and inspiring anthology written by 30 local veterans who have served in the United States Military. This is a salute to veterans of all eras and branches highlighting unforgettable experiences and bravery of those who have fought for our country and risked their lives for our freedom. Authors include transitioning veterans, active-duty military, gold star families, women in the military, Vietnam War Veterans, combat veterans and peacetime veterans. Some stories reflect on great loss, courage, challenges and honor. Others emulate a level of patriotism and love for their country that is unmatched. Some stories have never been shared until now. All of the accounts are amazing and inspirational.

Raven Hilden is excited about the book launch and says, “This book started as a way to share veteran’s voices and experiences to inspire others. So many veterans in our community have overcome insurmountable odds and I was in awe of what so many in my community accomplished and wanted to give them a platform to share with and inspire others. Many continue to dedicate their lives to selfless service and we all owe a debt of gratitude to them. I found as I read the stories that I learned much more than I expected.”
