About this title

Synopsis:

This collection of moving black-and-white photographs of recipients of the Medal of Honor shows not the glory of war, but the underlying spirit and humanity of true heroism. Forty-eight portraits are combined with comments, observations, and statements from the recipients of America's highest military honor. This compilation of words and pictures of men who served in the U.S. Navy, Air Force, Army, and Marine Corps is both humbling and poignant. Their actions and lives vary as much as the conflicts (World War II, Korea, and Vietnam) and include a conscientious objector who never wielded a weapon and a man known as the "Last Eagle," as he was the last World War II pilot to retire. Each recipient's full official citation is included in the appendix.

From the Publisher:

Most of my life, my photograghs have spoken for me. I communicate through the lens of a camera. This book is no exception.

I wanted you to see these men as I saw them. To learn about their experiences, their thoughts and their lives, just as I did.

Now, I would like to share the personal journey I have taken during the development of this book. It was a jouney of miles and meetings with strangers who became brothers. And it was also about long-ago memories and the love of family.

The most important part however is the message I have been entrusted to deliver to you on behalf of these men...these Ordinary Heroes.
