The Huffington Post Wins Pulitzer Prize

Today, The Huffington Post received a Pulitzer prize for its series Beyond the Battlefield, honored in the National Reporting field. Beyond the Battlefield is an exploration of the physical and emotional challenges, victories and setbacks that catastrophically wounded soldiers encounter after returning home from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. The ten-part series is a tribute worthy of the men and women whose lives it chronicles.

Beyond the Battlefield is the result of several months of reporting and scores of interviews by the HuffPost's veteran military correspondent, David Wood. It is a deeply-felt, hard-won and wide-ranging exploration of what it means for a soldier to suffer extraordinary, disabling wounds -- and how friends, families, and hometowns, as well as the military and medical communities, adjust and respond to the physical and emotional struggles these wounded warriors endure.

Beyond the Battlefield, which was created and distributed using BookBrewer,can be purchased on Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo. For those of you who would like to offer help of your own to severely wounded and disabled soldiers, please visit our Impact page, where you will find a list of resources that can help make that possible.
