About the Author

Kelly Estes has a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and a rather unique passion for World War II. At nineteen she became the youngest Santa Clara County Human Relations Commissioner, and at twenty-one she became the youngest-ever chair of the Justice Review Committee for that Commission. In 2008 she began writing The Cost of Courage. Her passion for helping service veterans compelled her to create and lead the Veterans Proactive Assistance Task Force in her community, where families and community organizations can come together to discuss and remedy issues facing returning veterans and prevent PTSD-related crime before it occurs. Kelly was honored for her service in November 2012 with a City Commendation, presented to her by the mayor of San Jose, California.
