Scuttlebutt Ep 79: Heroes Live Here with Amy ForsythePosted on: May 11,2023
Hello, Scuttlebutt listeners. This week we welcome Amy Forsythe, the author of the book, Heroes Live Here: A Tribute to Camp Pendleton Marines Since 9/11, to the show. Amy is a veteran Marine and award-winning military journalist who served five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and has been on assignment for several other overseas missions. Amy started her career as a Marine combat correspondent in 1993 and currently serves as Public Affairs Officer in the Navy Reserve. Her book, Heroes Live Here, showcases the history of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and is filled with more than 150 full-color vivid photographs of memorials and markers with a detailed map showing the location of several important monuments. It also includes reflections and remembrances from those who were stationed there over the past two decades and who still have strong ties to the base. Amy talks to us about her family ties to the Marine Corps, her career, the idea behind the book, and her passion for her Marines and those who deployed from Camp Pendleton in support of the long war. Follow Amy on the links below and check out the book. The photographs are simply stunning.
