Born on the Fourth of July: The Long Journey Home

By Remy Benoit

Many years ago, Ron Kovic came home from war.

He did not come home the same young man who went.

He came home bound to a wheelchair.

In the years between that homecoming and now, Ron has found his place as an advocate for peace.

His book, Born on the Fourth of July, is well known to many of us either from the book itself, or from the movie of the same name. If you do not know this story, it is time you did. Akashic Books. has released a new edition of Born on the Fourth of July.

Join Ron at AlterNet Born on the Fourth of July: The Long Journey Home. as he has some thoughts to share with you.
