This book is dedicated to those Real American Heroes who returned home from the war, but not the battles. May our love, support, and hearts be with them and their families.


 Johnny Zaledonis is the veteran I asked to be on the cover of The Triumph Book: HEROES. He was a true patriot and gentle spirit, loved by all who knew him. He served in Iraq, working on helicopters, so the helicopter on the cover was included in honor of him. Johnny passed away just a few months before the publishing of this book from PTSD-induced suicide. I dedicate this book and its message to his life and death; it is personal. May we prevent many others from knowing such loss.
