Short Synopsis
A U.S. Army major who served in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom presents twenty-nine true stories of courage from the frontlines of the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Full Synopsis
Over 1 million Americans have served in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past four years, but fewer than 500 from this group have earned a Silver Star, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Distinguished Service Cross, or the Medal of Honor. Those who have been awarded these distinguished honors all demonstrated an extraordinary courage under fire in the worst of circumstances.

These Americans come from all branches of the military. They also come from all over the country and all walks of life, representing the entire spectrum of races and creeds. But what unites them are their deeds of consummate bravery, beyond the call of duty. Heroes Among Us tells their extraordinary true stories of valor, honor, and sacrifice.

"James superbly performs these tales...[making] the entire production...very personal." ---AudioFile
