A new children's book celebrates local Navy SEAL Charles Keating IV, who was tragically killed by Islamic State militants while serving in Iraq. 

His mother, Krista Keating-Joseph, who wrote Big Hearted Charlie Runs the Mile, tells Barbara Gray that the book not only tells her son's heroic story to young readers, but helps keep his memory alive to her.
