Heroes Live Here: A Tribute to Camp Pendleton Marines Since 9/11 contains more than 150 full-color images and beautifully designed graphic illustrations depicting Camp Pendleton Marines involvement in combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. It's a one-of-a-kind book filled with perspectives and reflections from post-9/11 warfighters who've called Camp Pendleton home.
This book guides readers through the sprawling military base and shares heartwarming tributes behind more than a dozen monuments honoring those who served and sacrificed in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
The book started as a passion project to showcase the memorials and markers on Camp Pendleton and has turned into a collaborative work of art that honors our fallen heroes of the post-9/11 generation. Amy was first stationed at Camp Pendleton in 1995 and still has strong ties to the base and surrounding communities.
