5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful book honoring our Veterans! 26 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This was a truly inspiring compilation of stories by our nation's veterans. Being in the Armed Forces myself, I really enjoyed these stories of men and women who served before I entered the military. This book made me so proud of our veterans. I enjoyed this book so much, I sent a copy to my grandfather, who served in World War II and now walkes and moves with much difficulty from wounds he received in combat. He also enjoyed this book, relating to many of the stories. I would definitely recommend this book to all our veterans and anyone who now serves in our Armed Forces. I would also highly encourage anyone else to read it. It really honors all the men and women who would sacrifice their lives for the priviledges and rights our country offers us.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Most Important Books To Hit The Market!! 9 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This tribute to our veterans is incredibly powerful and quite moving. "Chicken Soup for the Veteran's Soul" should be in every household and history classroom in America. Whether you are a veteran or not, buy this book. Each story is fascinating and written from a very personal point of view. That makes it difficult to put down. Veterans Day will no longer be just another holiday to me thanks to "Vet's Soul".

5.0 out of 5 stars Stirring 23 Mar 2006
By TomR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was given to me by a good friend. He thought I, as a Vietnam vet, would identify with some of the stories. It is one of the absolutely most enjoyable books I have ever read. I even slowed down my usual reading speed to savor the stories . Each day, in the sunshine of my patio, I read two or three stories. Every story got my full attention. I even found one story about a man I knew in the army. I adamently recommend this book to any veteran.

4.0 out of 5 stars donation 29 July 2013

I donate these to the VA hospital. I'm told every one of them "walks away". So I get the used ones to give to the guys- if they like them I'm happy.
5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT - MUST READ ! + UPDATE 19 Mar 2006
By NAVY SPARKS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A truly wonderful book with numerous short tales about veterans.
Perhaps I am prejudiced, being a retired USN radioman. These
stories will uplift your spirits tremendously. Reading of the
selfless actions of veterans throughout our nations history may
add a new dimension to your life. What impressed me besides the
shear joy of reading these stories is that each and every one
was new to me. I suggest you keep some tissues nearby, this book
will truly tug on your emotions. I've sent this book to 3 others
so far. There's a huge series of Chicken Soup books. They all seem
to be written with the same care as this one.

UPDATE:

At the start of 2007 I had one of those V8 moments and decided to start a mission for myself. It would be pretty
easy. Simply it is to hand out a copy of this marvelous book to any veterans I might run across. Just a simple
"thank you for your service" gift. I carry three in my car's glove box. I usually order 10 at a time here. So far I've handed out 50 copies. I really get into this! I was beside a guy in a truck at a red light with a VietNam decal on the bumper. I yelled over and asked if it was his. When he nodded yes I asked him to pull over I wanted to give him something. He pulled into an animal vet parking lot. Give him one, he had been in the USAF. I typed up a short note and staple them inside the cover telling a little about my service and what my mission was. Now that I have blown my own horn way too much I would like to toss out an idea. How about doing a similar thing where you live? You meet the greatest folks and feel super when you've handed another one out.

Best Regards
