American Home Front

Karen Whiting and Jocelyn Green have co-authored a book called Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front (releases in April 2012). While researching home front heroes from all American wars, we've met remarkable women (and men, but mostly women). They are worth sharing with you! For more about the book, including blog, resources, and excerpts, see http://www.homefrontcourage.com.
