Life after war is not what you expect it to be. Whether you have served in front-line combat or experienced second-hand the destructive forces of war-your soul has been impacted. For war survivors and their families, life after war can be a confusing time. What happens after war? What can you expect? What issues will you face? In Close to Home, combat survivors and their families find a raw, tell-it-like-it-is, compassion-filled account of what survivors often go through when they come home. Facing deep emotional, mental and spiritual wounds, war survivors feel shattered on the inside. In this book, survivors find hope, inspiration and encouragement to pick up the fragments of 'life before war' and rebuild a new identity. Families gain invaluable insight into what goes through the hearts and minds of survivors and what they can do to help. The journey to healing is long, but it no longer has to be silent. 'This is an important book because it confronts an issue which thousands of soldiers face-how to return to 'normal' life after war .'--Edith M. Lederer, co-author of War Torn: Stories of War from the Women Reporters who Covered Vietnam 3
