‘Heroes’ Publication Tells Stories of Valor and Sacrifice

With Memorial Day and D-Day just passed, we have military courage and sacrifice on our minds. On Flag Day next week (June 14), Stars and Stripes, the military’s independent source for news and information, will publish Heroes (photo shows 2011 edition) in honor of the many soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who have been recognized for valor in Iraq and Afghanistan. The publication is in partnership with the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and The Boeing Company.

“The special section tells the story of men and women who have shown astonishing courage under fire. In telling these stories about valor and sacrifice we also believe ‘Heroes’ honors all the men and women in uniform and the sacrifices and hardships they and their families routinely endure for the sake of all Americans,” said Terry Leonard, Stars and Stripes editorial director.

Following its publication in print on June 14, additional multimedia content and an enhanced version of Heroes will be available online at the Stars and Stripes website.
