Her latest book, War Animals: The Unsung Heroes of World War II, was a 2019 Gold Medal winner from Military Writers Society of America.

Eight animals (6 posthumous/2 current) were awarded this new medal by members of Congress on November 14, 2019 in Washington, DC on Capitol Hill. This ceremony also launched the International War Animals Museum - a permanent museum to commemorate these war animals who fought side-by-side with our military war heroes.
