In honor of Memorial Day, the Okaloosa County School District purchased the book ‘Twenty-One Steps: Guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.‘
Originally published on February 12, 2021 by Jeff Gottesfeld, the book honors the soldiers who honor the fallen.
“With every step, the Tomb Guards pay homage to America’s fallen. Discover their story, and that of the unknown soldiers they honor, through resonant words and illustrations.”
“I was so proud to see the book, Twenty-One Steps, arrive at our schools,” said Superintendent Marcus Chambers. “We purchased this book, as a surprise, in honor of Memorial Day to become a part of each schools media center (though it arrived a little late).”
“The story is a touching reminder that our Freedom comes from those military members, those soldiers, who lived and died for our country,” Chambers continued. “Sadly, some who died protecting our country were never identified and were classified as Unknown Soldiers.”
