Editors Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Sid Slagter

"I dare you to read this book without puddling up with admiration for the courage displayed by our soldiers and an appreciation of Chicken Soup's philosophy that one person can make a difference to those whose lives he touches, even in the terrible toils of combat."

  Dedicated to the Soul of Service

Veterans have always told their stories. Chicken Soup for the Veteran's Soul is dedicated to preserving and publishing these stories for the world to share. And it's not just memories we care about. A portion of the profits generated from Chicken Soup for the Veteran's SoulŪ will go to various organizations that are doing important work for veterans and our soldiers on active duty.

The community that has developed around this book has been a surprise. Old friends have been reunited, long forgotten heroes have been recognized, and new acquaintances created, all as a result of the publishing of this book. Read some of the stories and you too will realize this book is miraculous. Be part of our community - come sign our guest book, and see who's been here before you. Many of our readers and contributors have their own web sites, too.

America needs to know what our veterans went through to defend our freedom. The veterans need to be acknowledged and appreciated. We're doing what we can to make both these goals happen. Through speaking engagements and book tours, we're getting the word out.

We hope you enjoy this book. If you haven't read it yet, you'll love it. It'll make you feel the kind of pride for our nation and our people that has inspired veterans since the time of George Washington.

If you have questions for us, please don't hesitate to contact us.
