They Gave Blood Sweat and Tears: True Stories of American Veterans from World War II to Operation Iraqi Freedom
by Bill Hall
What the men in They Gave Blood, Sweat and Tears did was the ultimate test of their character and fortitude. Their character speaks volumes as they reached heights never approached before. Many were from farms or small towns; some withdrew from college and put their education on hold. They all left their families and sweethearts behind; they knew what they were going to was much larger and important. What they were going to do had to be done and they would be the ones to do it. Some came home perfectly fine while others took years to regroup and some would never be able to. Some were prisoners-of-war and some may never have seen battle. But all had served and did so without reservation.
These gentleman are the real heroes in American history and everyday life; not television or movie stars, rockers or sports people. They are the ones that have helped preserve our liberties and the lives we have today. They are the ones that have lived and died for our freedoms abroad so we did not have to fight them on our ground. It is because of them and not a poltitican you have the liberties you have today.
