Young boys' minds are often filled with dreams of the future. They dream about playing football or baseball, girls and dating, graduating from high school and maybe going to college. As it is today, so it was in the past. However, that all changed for the boys of the 1940s when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941. Heroes Everyone is the true stories of five young boys who, in order to defend their country, put their lives on hold and joined the United States Marine Corps. Join these young boys in their foxholes, in the trenches, on the battlefields, even in the hospitals. Feel their fears, their weariness, and know their pain. Come along with them across the battlefields of the South Pacific and join them on the tiny island of Iwo Jima as they fight their last battle of World War II, and survive. Steve Rimmer, Jim Callahan, Cecil Matheney, John McKinnon, and Frank Hall will tell you they are not heroes. They will tell you that the real heroes are those who didn't come back. But they, like all who have chosen to serve their country, are Heroes Everyone.
