This book is an attempt, on the part of the author, to illustrate the reality of our union; that In spite of our differences in race, gender, philosophy and age, we are one nation and we are going to be treated as one by our neighbors around the world. The author does that in these pages by showing that our diversity can be viewed as a strength and should be. This is done by looking first at the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and how those sacrifices have been shared by all races, genders and religious groups within the American population. When a foreign national pulls down our flag or screams, "Yankee go home!", he is not referring only to an American from north of the Mason-Dixon Line. He means all of us! In spite of our differences, for better or for worse, we are one!
