5.0 out of 5 stars Iraq Veteran, April 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The War Comes Home: Washington's Battle against America's Veterans (Paperback)
I served in active duty from 2004-2009. During my five years in the active duty army, I served a year and a half in Iraq as apart of the Iraq Surge. Before I went to Iraq in april 2007, I prayed to God, "If I come back alive, let me be an influence". And God surely answered my prayers, because for 15 months, I learned so much about war. I came back and was misdiagnos for my ptsd. My chain of command "supposingly" had alot to do, so thats why alot of troops were denied the opportunity to gain counselors assistance. After 3 months back in america, misconducts began to rise and i feel into the mix. My stellar performance was swept aside and a year after returning to america, I was given the boot with an "less than honorable".

Anyways, I type the above paragraph in order to state, this book isnt just phenominal, its a "relationship". At first, I was like nonchalant because journalist usually have no ideal what they speak about; however, mr. glantz has been overseas and the majority of the things he writes, are so accurate. for example: page 218, 3rd paragraph, describes a almost normal day in Iraq. The soldiers stories are on point and they've proven "ptsd is a match which starts a forest fire." He even suffered with PTSD upon returning from Iraq, which was a spark for him to jott down notes which turned into this fantastic book. I recommend this book for ALL (especially those who are suicide survivors, victims of the VA hyporcrisy, and most of all, "veterans"). TRIPLE PLANTINUM!!!!!
