DUBBO, Australia – Author Peter Francis Kenny’s parents were in the army and their death as well as that of his grandfather served as his inspiration to write “We Who Proudly Served” (published by Xlibris AU).
This book highlights the courage and fighting spirit of Australian young men and women who have come from all walks of life to give of their time, and unfortunately, some have even given their lives, to defend this great land and keep it free. They include politicians, doctors, nurses, police officers, average everyday citizens, musicians, actors, artists, farmers, graziers, authors, sportsmen and women, journalists and a host of others who have taken up the cause for their country and the monarchy, serving from the Crimean to the war in Vietnam and beyond.
“Without these gallant men and women’s sacrifice and courage featured in this book, society would not exist as we knew it,” Kenny says. “They gave up their time and often their lives to defend us.”
Through the publication of “We Who Proudly Served,” Kenny hopes that it will instill pride among Australian in their nation, one that can be handed down from generation to generation.
