From the Author
In researching this story, I read hundreds of first-hand accounts written by caregivers, soldiers, and veterans. Sarah, Rosa, Mike, Yaz, and Butch are not real. Any similarities between the events in this book and actual events experienced by real persons are coincidental.
However, I know that many thousands of our servicemen and women do face similar challenges in their lives. I set the story in 2008-09. Since then, the US Army has made significant improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD and TBI.
But much is left undone.
