From War to Peace
The Longest Journey
Coming home is the hardest part of war.
As soldiers, we dealt with death every day. As returning warriors we must deal with life. Learning to live with PTSD is only part of reintegration. I was a soldier in the Vietnam War. Writing my first novel, Secret Choices, was the first step towards home. I started Dragon Tale Books, published my novel then began this website where I gather articles, essays, books, and poetry that I hope will start veterans and their families on a journey home.
