Andrews McMeel Publishing has released the “Doonesbury” collection focusing on B.D. and his struggle to recover after losing a leg in Iraq last year.

“The Long Road Home: One Step at a Time” (E&P Online, March 23) includes a foreword by Sen. John McCain. All proceeds from the book benefit the Fisher House Foundation, which provides temporary homes for families of injured soldiers being treated at major military and veterans’ medical centers.

Cartoonist Garry Trudeau researched the B.D. story line by visiting wounded soldiers and amputees at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

“Doonesbury” appears in about 1,400 newspapers via Universal Press Syndicate.
