The criteria: on active duty from September 1947 onwards. A moment of greatness, or a lifetime of great accomplishment, or both. Already on our list are 18 Medal of Honor winners from Korea to Afghanistan. Send us your picks! One, two, a dozen names or more.
We’re not selecting the 75 greatest ever, but showcasing both legends and lesser-known individuals, from 1947 through today.
Look for the book in early 2022.
