5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for children of combat veterans, November 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Thirty Days with My Father: Finding Peace from Wartime PTSD (Paperback)
My father always spoke openly about his two tours in Vietnam. Growing up, however, I never associated his combat experience with his unpredictable mood swings, his short fuse when it came to patience or his explosive anger over minor failures. I learned to back off, to be quiet, and to get away. It took over 30 years for him to be diagnosed and to get help. The VA came through for him but, as Christal's dad points out, for many it does not. For those of us who have dealt first hand with a combat PTSD sufferer, this book is a reassurance that we are not alone. For others, it is a lesson in the long-term trickle-down effects of war. Veterans who don't like to talk about their war REALLY don't like to talk about it. Christal has done an amazing job getting her father to share his story, and she is brave to share her own. Wonderful book.
