Valor features Mark Lee Greenblatt’s interviews with brave American servicemen – soldiers, sailors, and Marines who risked their lives several time over for their country as well as for their fellow troops and civilians – from our 21st Century wars. Until now, however, their stories have largely gone unnoticed by the public, perhaps lost in the frenzied and often contentious debate surrounding those conflicts. Profiling incredible and evocative feats – including an Army pilot who rescued two fellow pilots from a deadly crash in hostile territory and strapped himself to the helicopter’s exterior for the flight to the hospital – Greenblatt provides glimpses into the minds of these men as they face gut-wrenching decisions and overcome enormous odds. He explores each hero’s motivations, dreams, and the genuine emotions that were evoked in the face of extreme danger – whether in close-quarters urban fighting in Iraq to mountainside ambushes in rural Afghanistan to a midnight rescue in the middle of the Atlantic – as they served as patriots in the line of duty.
