In his new book, The Mindset of a Patriot, Mansfield author Earl Austin pays tribute to the 625,000 patriots who made the ultimate sacrifices during the nation’s 20th Century wars.

“The Mindset of a Patriot” relates the stories of 52 courageous young men from Mansfield, Mass. Each of these small-town heroes died for the country during one of our nation’s 20th Century wars. At the most critical junctures in the nation’s history, these youthful sacrifices—along with the life-long sacrifices of each Gold Star family—enabled the riches and rewards the nation has enjoyed as a free society over the years that followed their successes on the battlefield.

In the name of the more than 625,000 who made the ultimate sacrifice, the nation’s congressional leadership owes much more sincerity, honesty and integrity in the governance of this greatest nation that each and every personal life surrendered helped put in place for this and all future generations. Through “The Mindset of a Patriot,” readers will develop a renewed appreciation for the true dimension and depth of each life-ending contribution to the wellbeing of democracy and America. The 52 Mansfield patriots, together with those in cities and towns all across America, illustrate the compromise and personal sacrifice it takes to sustain a democracy.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
