MCLEAN, Virginia, November 10, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Opus One Studios, publisher of creative products supporting deserving causes, today announced the release of a graphic novel-style publication to support the Education & Engagement program of the Code of Support Foundation by recounting the history of American veterans and introducing readers to the United States armed forces.
The booklet, titled “Johnny Vet, America’s Original Superhero”, is written for young readers but can serve as a resource for the whole family. Although primarily intended for high school students, the first pages are appropriate for young elementary school students and the following pages will be informative for high school students and adults.
“Our education and engagement program aims to bridge the civil-military divide which is a by-product of our all-volunteer military,” said Kristina kaufmann, CEO and co-founder of the Code of Support Foundation. “Less than 1% of Americans serve in uniform today. The vast majority of the remaining 99% have no one in their family, and they may not even know someone who serves,” she said. for follow-up. “This booklet is intended to help them understand the military, and what service and sacrifice are.”
“Johnny Vet is the ‘Everyman’ of American veterans throughout our history, and his counterpart, Jane, is the ‘Everywoman’,” said MG (retired) Alan salisbury, co-founder and chairman emeritus of the Code of Support Foundation, and also CEO of publisher Opus One Studios. “They represent the millions of American men and women who from 1775 to the present day have kept America strong and free.”

The West Point Alumni Glee Club has created a musical production, “Johnny Vet: freedom is not free” in 2017 to tell the story of America’s music veterans.
