As the wife of a Vet (formerly in the Air Force) who then went active duty in the Army Reserves after our first child was born, I have great respect and concern for our vets. Our home of record is the location of one of the largest Marine Corps bases in the country. So we have a lot of friends who are vets. So when I had the opportunity to read this book, I was glad to read it.
This book is dedicated to addressing the needs and concerns of loved ones who are vets dealing with PTSD. It includes more than 60 heartfelt questions for taking care of yourself. Shared from the viewpoint a counselor along with her personal experience, this book touches on a lot of wisdom and quite a range of issues.
I found the book to be well-written, informative and worth reading. I appreciated how she was willing to share her own experiences with her readers. I also appreciated how she included reflection questions at the end of each chapter.
Welby O’Brien, the author, has a master’s degree in counseling as well as a teacher’s degree. She is an author of several books, plus a contributor author to Chicken Soup for the Soul as well as Shepherding Women in Pain.
So if you have a family member who is. a vet or know of someone who is a vet, check out this book for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.
