To support the series, we have created an educational component that can be used in classrooms based on information presented in the series. Additionally, there is a lot of information that, due to time constraints, was not presented in the series. That additional information is available in the educational module. For more information on how to obtain the educational component developed to support A Leap of Faith: The Untold Story of the Triple Nickles, contact us below.
Additionally, there are two publications of note which contain a comprehensive story of the unit from the soldiers' perspective. A lot of the information, particularly quotes, serve as excellent source material for the series. Check back frequently as we will be adding additional social media and web links.
