Sgt. Travis Stoddard, seen when he received his Purple Heart, said he liked what he read of “The Long Road Home” during his recovery at Landstuhl. “That book is all right,” said the 25-year-old from Greenville, S.C.

Love him or hate him, Garry Trudeau, the man responsible for the “Doonesbury” comic strip, is doing his part to help wounded troops and their families.

Trudeau is donating all his proceeds from the sale of his newly released book “The Long Road Home: One Step at a Time” to the Fisher House Foundation. Also, Andrews McMeel Publishing, the book’s publisher, is contributing 10 percent of its take from the book to Fisher House.
