May No Soldier Go Unloved: Book 1
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) July 9, 2007
"May No Soldier Go Unloved: Book 1," by Jeff Bader (330 pages) $19.95, presale at http://www.angelsstore.org), chronicles the incredible journey of one woman's desire to help troops deployed around the world and how that has drawn over 120,000 volunteers and millions of dollars to her cause. In the past four years, Soldiers' Angels has grown to become the country's largest military support non-profit organization.
Patti Patton Bader has the heart of Mother Teresa, the motivational mastership of Vince Lombardi, and the mobilization skills of Genghis Khan. She was raised an army brat; the great niece of the famous World War II General George S. Patton, daughter of decorated Vietnam Veteran Lt. Colonel David W. Patton, and sister of Iraqi War Veteran David Patton.
When her oldest son, Brandon, was sent to Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom, in the spring of 2003, she decided to send him at least one care package a day and keep a blog of the events that occurred in Iraq and Afghanistan as an electronic scrapbook for Brandon when he returned.
What started out as a mother's small commitment to her son, soon turned into Soldiers' Angels. Assisting deployed troops around the world, Soldiers' Angels sends care packages and letters of encouragement to those in the field, provides first response backpacks and blankets of hope to the wounded, ships voice activated laptops to soldiers who have lost their arms, hands, or sight, and delivers "living trees" to the fallen hero's families who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Patti has received numerous awards and tons of letters of appreciation from soldiers, airmen, sailors, marines, family members, doctors, nurses, the Surgeon General of the Army, the Secretary of Defense, and the President of the United States. The Smithsonian Institute now hosts the same blog that Patti started years ago, brandonblog.com, which is still updated daily.
Patti Patton Bader is a regular guest on numerous radio shows around the country, and the stories of her and other Soldiers' Angels' deeds and actions are published in local newspapers and magazines almost daily. Her newsletter alone raises several millions of dollars a year in donations. She takes not even one dime for compensation, and does all of this from her bed with a laptop computer, a big screen TV, and a cell phone.
Patti has Hepatitis C and fibrosis of the liver, and is often confined to her bed. She is in extreme pain most waking hours.
"Patti is an amazing example of selflessness, patriotism, caring and dedication. I should know… I'm her husband. Like an angel, she has anonymously and thanklessly touched the lives of many people she doesn't know. She works from the time she gets up in the early morning to the time she falls asleep from exhaustion late at night. Patti Patton Bader is a true American patriot. This is her story and the story of the founding of Soldiers' Angels."
"May No Soldier Go Unloved: Book 1," by Jeff Bader, is available at http://www.angelsstore.org for $19.95. The first 1000 copies will be signed by the author, and by Patti Patton Bader. This is the first in a series of books to be published about Soldiers' Angels and its journey.
