Chances are, you are familiar with the name Walter Reed only because you have heard of the major army medical center named after him. Maybe you have heard of his name in general references related to yellow fever. Either way, there is so much more to this humble, hard-working man than most know. He wore many hats; husband, father, military officer, scientist, and doctor are just a few. His scientific achievements are benefiting humanity today. Walter Reed had humble beginnings but his intelligence and perseverance allowed him to excel in life. He received his Doctor of Medicine in 1869 and remains the youngest person to graduate from the University of Virginia medical school to this day. After his graduation, he studied further and received a second degree from Bellevue Hospital Medical College. After briefly working in New York, Dr. Walter Reed then decided to join the Medical Corps in the United States Army. Throughout his military career he would be stationed in many different locations, including New York, Arizona, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Alabama. The first part of his military career was spent on the frontier treating a variety of patients and illnesses. The latter half of his career was spent in Washington, D.C., doing research, teaching classes, and learning of new medical advances. His most significant work was done with the US Army Yellow Fever Commission. Along with other fellow physicians and scientists, Dr. Walter Reed was able to unravel the scourge, yellow fever that had been a mystery since the 15th century. In this short book, you´ll learn all the amazing details of Dr. Walter Reed´s life and his profound work. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory Diehl.

Unbreakable Bonds tells 10 touching stories of mothers who spent years aiding the recovery of their children, US soldiers and Marines who suffered severe injuries during the War on Terror. The survival of these wounded warriors is a testament not only to the extraordinary efforts of military medical personnel and their own inner fortitude, but also to their mothers. These women put their lives on hold from the moment they get that first call about their injured son or daughter, giving up their homes and careers and leaving behind family and friends. They are ever present, from those agonizing early days in intensive care, through dozens of lifesaving operations and the months and years of both triumphs and setbacks during therapy and rehabilitation. Their commitment, like the wounds their children suffer, is lifelong. Unbreakable Bonds showcases the selfless love and support of the mothers who, like their wounded warriors, have been changed forever, and who have, without hesitation, sacrificed greatly for their country. They also find strength through the exclusive network of caregivers, who are there not only for their sons and daughters, but for each other as well. With forewords from former president George H. W. Bush and former Maryland congresswoman Connie Morella, this audiobook will appeal to US service members and their loved ones - and those without ties to the military will gain appreciation for those who risk so much to serve our country. 1.

Among the soldiers who fought in the Indian Wars, perhaps none are as famous as the 7th Cavalry Regiment, but it’s typically for the wrong reasons. Since the Battle of the Little Bighorn, George Armstrong Custer and the 7th Cavalry have become associated with a relatively insignificant battle during America’s Indian Wars, but one that has become one of the country’s most mythologized events and continues to fascinate Americans more than 140 years later. That’s because the Battle of the Little Bighorn, fought in June 1876, was one of the US military’s biggest debacles. All told, the 7th Cavalry suffered more than 50 percent casualties, with more than 250 men killed and over 50 wounded. The dead included Custer´s brothers, Boston and Thomas, his brother-in-law, James Calhoun, and his nephew, Henry Reed. Custer and his men were buried where they fell. A year later, Custer’s remains (or more accurately, the remains found in the spot labeled with his name) were relocated to West Point for final interment. Of course, the military failures at Little Bighorn would be overlooked, and even though Army officers in the wake of the battle largely faulted Custer for what had happened, and men like Jesse Reno went about trying to protect their own personal reputation, the image of the 7th Cavalry as brave soldiers making a defiant last stand captured the public’s imagination and continues to be one of the popular perceptions today. Eventually, Custer and the 7th Cavalry’s ´´Last Stand” would become a symbol for American heroism in the face of overwhelming odds, and it has only been recently that historians have begun to move away from the myth to analyze that battle in a more objective manner. 1.
