COLUMBIA, /Christian Newswire/ -- Those Who Serve is a devotional for those who serve our great nation. At the core of this book are the themes of faith, family, and freedom. It includes personal life stories from the author as well as thirty-three stories from Medal of Honor recipients and ex-POWs from our country's major conflicts. Some of their stories are told in the inspiring DVD, which is included with the book. The author also uses examples of military insignia and badges to connect military history with pertinent scriptures. It's designed to be a resource for military chaplains, all those in uniform, as well as all veterans.
Two of the sections of the book include advice for life and stories of American heroes who served in harm's way. These individuals offer practical and spiritual wisdom for life.

Those Who Serve includes the photos of all the contributors featured in this book as well as images of various military insignia.
