Our nation is facing a crisis in the next decade as the military down-sizes and more than two million combat veterans return to civilian society. Solving the problem of how to reintegrate them will require a multi-faceted, holistic approach. Justice Schaller's perceptive book poses in clear prose the magnitude of the task.
A "Must Read" for veterans, families and friends of veterans, and law enforcement officials, education professionals, health care professionals, and business people who want to be part of the solution.
I found it to be a terrific, clear and engaging read that is an education in itself. In all probability we will all be dealing with these issues ourselves especially in the behavioral health and medical arenas - to say nothing of our own neighborhoods. As an educated society, we should all be aware of the costs on individuals of going to war. This thoroughly researched book spells out the legal and legislative attmepts that have been made to cope with soldiers returning from war with PTSD (both now and historically) and fleshes it out with real-life personal stories of individuals, both men and women, who struggle to cope with the effect war has had on them. Reading this book will help make all of us more conversant with the legal and historical issues while making us more compassionate and informed citizens.
It would be great if libraries would promote this book for book discussion groups. I believe this book can both prepare us and help heal us.
