Klinger A Story of Honor and Hope By: Betsy Beard
Klinger, A Story of Honor and Hope is the endearing story of a young horse dreaming of fame as a racehorse. But his life is disrupted and he must leave his parents to start a new life. Faced with difficulty and disappointment, Klinger's dream of significance seems unattainable. He then discovers fulfillment in honoring fallen heroes and bringing comfort to their families. This award winning hardcover picture book is based on the story of a real horse who works in Arlington National Cemetery. It was written by the mother of a fallen hero for Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a national nonprofit Veterans Service Organization that brings help, hope, and healing to those whose loved one has died in military service.
