Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran, senior correspondent and associate editor of the Washington Post, have written a book "detailing the extraordinary contributions veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have made both on the battlefield and at home." Knopf will release For Love of Country: What Our Veterans Can Teach Us About Citizenship, Heroism, and Sacrifice on November 4, a week ahead of Veterans Day.
“For Love of Country tells stories of the service and heroism of the men and women of our nation’s forces while highlighting their considerable leadership, discipline and citizenship as they move forward on a new mission—to continue serving society as the next greatest generation of American veterans,” said Schultz. “Given that less than 1% of our country has served in the military conflicts of the last decade, this is a time in America when it’s crucial to bridge the divide in our society between our civilian and military populations.”
Schultz and Chandrasekaran plan on donating the majority of their proceeds to veterans service organizations focused on successful transitions for post 9/11 veterans and their families.
