They survived the insanity of the Vietnam War by telling themselves, "It don't mean nuthin'." But it did. This collection of nonfiction short works tells the story of how war damages our soldiers, and then pulls back the curtain of trauma treatment to offer a rare glimpse of how these veterans strive to integrate those combat experiences and recover. Though intimately revealing the human shadow and darkness of war, this is a hopeful book: it is about transformation, restoring meaning and connection, and navigating the archetypal hero's journey as survivors come home from war. It seeks to unite our warriors and civilian public together in learning and healing. Their stories are this liminal bridge. This narrative tapestry arose from the psychotherapeutic process of treating our nation's combat veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. But this book is also about the author's own self-discovery, tracing his evolution as a clinical psychologist and combat trauma specialist dedicated to working with Vietnam veterans. In this book, the author serves as a therapist, narrator, advocate, keeper of veterans' sacred "dark" wisdom, and fellow traveler.
