The heroes of World War II have gained accolades for storming beaches and shooting down planes and sinking ships, for performing acts of great valor in intense danger.
But what about the unsung heroes, those men and women who quietly performed their jobs, still making sacrifices and facing danger, but without accolades?
This month I wrote an article, “Unsung Heroes,” for The Book Club Network’s Book Fun Magazine. I hope you enjoy it.
Pictured is my personal favorite unsung hero, my grandfather, Frederick Stewart, who served as a pharmacist’s mate in the US Navy in the Pacific. I’m thankful for the service of millions of heroes like him.
