Beyond Valor recounts a miraculous story of a soldier's remarkable heroism, a teenage woman's unfailing love, and the faith that secured them all.
On April 12, 1945, as a fleet of American B-29 bombers flew toward Japan, disaster struck when a phosphorous bomb detonated inside one of the planes. Staff Sergeant Henry E. "Red" Erwin took the blast of the burning phosphorous and threw the still-flaming bomb overboard, then collapsed from the third-degree burns covering much of his body.
Erwin's plane was diverted to a military hospital in an effort to save him, and President Truman ordered Erwin be awarded the Medal of Honor. General Curtis LeMay ordered a squad of airmen to go on a 1,000-mile mission to smash their way into a display case to steal a medal of honor for Erwin before he died.
Meanwhile, a courageous teenage bride set out on her own mission to defy the odds. Her mission's success would mean an entirely new destiny for the twenty-three-year-old warrior, and years later make possible the birth of the book's author, Jon Erwin. Beyond Valor is a remarkable tale of bravery, heroism, faith, and devotion.
