The first to graduate after the events of 9/11, the midshipmen of the U.S. Naval Academy’s Class of 2002 have faced nothing but war ever since. Katherine Kranz, herself a member of that class, presents their stories in In the Shadow of Greatness: Voices of Leadership, Sacrifice, and Service from America’s Longest War.

Kranz is a Naval Flight Officer for the E-2C Hawkeye, an aircraft carrier-capable, tactical airborne early warning aircraft. She flew three overseas deployments and recently served as a NATO adviser and executive aide in Afghanistan.
