Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0975915517, Hardcover)

Thousands of our aging war veterans pass with each new day. So too, their stories vanish--firsthand history gone forever. EVERYTOWN, USA follows one man's race against the clock to save his community's military past before time closes the door. Albion, Indiana, an even mix of farms and factories, serves as the backdrop. Not unlike any other similarly-sized town in the Midwest, or country for that matter, Albion has a story to tell. Its citizens battled at Gettysburg, stormed Normandy's beaches, froze at the Chosin Reservoir, slopped through the Mekong Delta and fought for Iraqi freedom. But few knew of them, even in their own hometown. Author, Michael McCoy pledged to change all that. EVERYTOWN, USA tells the story of one community's fight, FROM MAIN STREET TO THE FRONT LINES, from the American Revolution to the War in Iraq. But that's only the beginning. McCoy vows to start a revolution. EVERYTOWN, USA serves as a blueprint to be repeated in every city and burg across this great nation. McCoy implores readers to not only save the tales of their 'Everytown, USAs,' be it Manistee, Michigan or Ridgefield, Washington or Winchester, Virginia, but also to share them with the world.
