Excited to pass on news of the first review of my upcoming book, Moving a Nation to Care: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and America's Returning Troops. Mark Fleming, co-host of Dennis Stout's About Face program (give a listen to my December appearance discussing combat PTSD with fellow guests Dr. Robert Roerich and Kay Shepherd of ePluribus Media) and editor of his own blog, Unsolicited Opinion, begins:
Moving A Nation to Care: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and America’s Returning Troops is a timely and important reminder that war’s costs are often more subtle than the obvious dead and wounded casualties. Regardless of one’s view of the wisdom of any particular war, author Ilona Meagher clearly demonstrates that the psychological wounds of war require as much attention as the more visibly injured. Achingly illustrated with examples of soldiers’ experiences after returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, Moving A Nation to Care is a wake-up call to the wider public who may be tempted to dismiss the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder as something that veterans must simply "get over" upon returning to civilian life.
Please read the rest when you have a moment (and check out comment #2...a George Carlin classic). Thank you, Mark, for the time you took to read and review. What a great step forward in our push to bring this issue the attention it deserves.
