520 Grace's dad was wounded in action. Now, some things about
their family are different, but they love and help each
other just like other families.
520 "Hero at Home" was inspired by the author's personal
family journey: having three young daughters and a
catastrophically wounded Veteran husband. Grace's dad is
an inspiration to so many, but he is not the only one in
his family who deals with scars of war. This book is
dedicated to the brave men of Bravo Company, 2-508th
Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne, who fought
alongside Grace's dad-the ones who came home, and in
loving memory of the ones who did not. An important read
for those wishing to embrace the Wounded Heroes in their
community and better understand that for these Heroes, the
fight doesn't end when they return home. The mission
continues and is a family affair. Injuries from military
service can be both visible and invisible. "Hero at Home"
celebrates the contribution that our Veterans have made,
and shines a light on how vital it is to embrace these
