Bush Institutes Military Service Initiative, this book brings together 66 full color portraits and a 4 panel mural painted by President Bush of members of the United States military who have served our nation with honor since September 11 and whom he has come to know personally. The authors profits from this book will be donated to the George W. Bush Presidential Center, a non profit organization whose Military Service Initiative is focused on helping post September 11 veterans and their families make a successful transition to civilian life.
