What I liked best about this book was how it makes an effort to de-stigmatize PTSD. The principle I took to heart most was that PTSD is not a mental illness, but a normal reaction to an abnormal set of circumstances. Perhaps this understanding will encourage some of our "hard-core" soldiers to put aside their pride and get the help they may need. --Book Review by Lauren Sullivan
