Beautiful, intense, thought provoking and devastating. Our Veterans- all of them- deserve so much more than this country gives back to them. Support our Vets!

Very important read for our time. Gives insight into the mind of a soldier. Written through the eyes of his young daughter as she matures to her own adulthood. Pressley's father's PTDS had a huge effect on her own mental health. PTDS affects not only the person who lived through the trauma, but their spouse and future generations, too.
