And Then I Cried: Stories of a Mortuary NCO Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This isn't an easy book. It is heartbreaking and about as sad as it gets when viewing it from the perspective of those the fallen have left behind. However, this book ultimately tells the story of honoring the dead in a personal way and performing a duty with the utmost respect and dignity even when the manner of death was neither kind or dignified.
I was conversely touched emotionally by this book and also fascinated by the dedication and strength and ability of the mortuary technicians to face the worst of the worse and carry on.
If you can handle the subject matter, I highly recommend this book which presents the everyday challenges faced in a sober and respectful way while not sugar coating the reality.
I too suffer from PTSD but mine comes from the constant active-duty being on call 24/7 running com gear and Noise, training our officers how to drop live bombs.
I have to rank your book up there with a young lady from the Marine Corps that was in The Mortuary Service wrote her book and her struggles both of you get more than five stars
I think it is wonderful that you found an organization that you can work with.
There are a lot of wonderful organizations out there I work with quite a few myself and it really does help your PTSD
Thanks again for this wonderful book I believe everybody should read this
Semper Fi my friend
Justin does a great job of telling his story from the beginning, leading you through what happens during his post and ending where he is at today. When you read this book, you will feel like you've come full circle.
If you are the kind of person who can easily put yourself in someone else' shoes, this will also be an emotional read.
This was a great purchase!
Those who have experienced traumas in their lives will have an honest relate-ability with the author as you will travel with him down his memory lane, recounting these moments in his career that changed him forever.
Personally, many times I've had to take short breaks while reading in order to regain my own mental controls before rejoining Justin in his journeys.
This is a must-read for those that have been there and done that. It gives an honest view from those that took care of our fallen brothers and sisters and it has helped me by knowing there are those, like Justin, that took such strong and diligent care of our fallen.
Thank you, Justin, for having the courage to share your stories with all of us. You are a true brother in arms.
