This inspiring story of perseverance and triumph, dramatically and for all time, sets the record straight on their unrecognized courage and sacrifices. At the heart of Unsung Heroes are the powerful first-hand accounts of women who have answered the call and stand proud in their commitment to the patriotic ideals of the United States.
