Marine Corps veteran Amy Forsythe publishes new book titled Heroes Live Here: A Tribute to Camp Pendleton Marines Since 9/11
OCEANSIDE, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Oceanside Public Library is proud to host a new photo exhibit by award-winning multimedia journalist and U.S. Marine Corps veteran Amy Forsythe.
The exhibit is based on her new book titled 'Heroes Live Here: A Tribute to Camp Pendleton Marines Since 9/11,' which chronicles the war memorials and tributes located within the sprawling military training facility in north San Diego county.
The exhibit will be on display and open to the public through June 14 and is located at 330 North Coast Highway in Oceanside, California.
Following her three deployments to Afghanistan and two combat tours in Iraq, Forsythe wanted to capture the tributes to the fallen and "put a human face on war." This exhibit provides an opportunity for our community to reflect on the 20 years in which many of the surrounding communities provided support to military members who were deployed at least once to Afghanistan and/or Iraq.

The photo exhibit is a free program supported by the Oceanside Public Library's Veterans Connect at the Library initiative and is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Libraries and Veterans National Forum. The Libraries and Veterans National Forum was born out of efforts from librarians at the Texas A&M University Libraries and their desire to better learn from other libraries' efforts to support the veteran and military communities.
