“There's combat. Then, there's the rest of your life. We need survival skills for each battle zone. This is the guide to surviving the war back here. We all need it. A hell of a book. The lucky get it.”
―Max Cleland, former United States Senator from Georgia, former Administrator of the Veterans Administration, decorated wounded combat veteran of the Vietnam War
"I've never met a mental health professional who 'gets it' as well as Colonel Charles Hoge. He's done the research, he's been shoulder-to-shoulder with warriors, and he's woven it together in language that is real and resonant. Once a Warrior―Always a Warrior is a vital handbook for every leader, and it is a survival book for warriors-come-home." ―Nate Self, former Army Ranger Captain, author of Two Wars: One Hero's Fight on Two Fronts―Abroad and Within
“John Denver's lyrics about coming home to a place you've never been before sums up this book. A brilliant guide, and very much needed now.” ―Gordon R. Roberts, Medal of Honor recipient
“Once a Warrior – Always a Warrior is the answer to the question “Where can I get great advice to help me adjust to returning home?” Charles Hoge shares his experience as a soldier and his wealth of knowledge as a physician and mental health expert with the aim of easing the transition from the battleground to civilian life. The book is fact-filled, authoritative, and immensely practical. It is a must read for returning military personnel, their families and friends, and anyone who provides care to active duty personnel and veterans.” ― Murray B. Stein MD, MPH, Professor of Psychiatry and Family & Preventive Medicine, University of California San Diego; Staff Psychiatrist, VA San Diego Healthcare System; Volunteer Staff Psychiatrist, Naval Medical Center San Diego
“Finally, a respected military leader and mental health professional brings a no-bullshit, common-sense approach to the discussions on combat stress, resilience and warrior adaptations. Colonel Hoge's integrity and deep commitment to supporting America's service members are clearly expressed in this book. It is an excellent starting point for anyone who wants to understand and navigate their own adaptations to operational stress and adversity, or those of the people they care about. This is a great resource for warriors of all backgrounds and generations.” ―Dan Taslitz, former Reconnaissance Marine, Iraq combat veteran.
