This Sunday, November 11th, is Veterans Day. Hurry in to SLPL and check out one of these books describing the life of a soldier during wartime, and the trials and joys of returning home. Understand the complicated emotions of those left behind at home to wait, and struggle with wounded warriors as they walk the long road to recovery. No matter what war they have served in, whether World War II, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, or any other conflict, no matter their age, no matter their current status and occupation, American veterans deserve our grateful thanks and our respect.
