Charlie Baker Governor, of Massachusetts

With humility, honesty, and humor, Tom and Joan tell us what ignited their passion for service, shaped their foundations of faith and how their shared values ultimately led them to one another. Although in different parts of the globe, these two traveled on parallel paths experiencing the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and then in the Commonwealth’s Department of Veterans’ Services, they took care of Massachusetts veterans in the Global War on Terror. This book is unique among Medal of Honor memoirs in that it tells the full story of a wife’s own military service. That the book’s net proceeds will go to veterans’ charities speaks volumes of Tom and Joan’s life-long dedication to veterans.
