Healing from war's devastating effects isn't easy--but it is possible.
For every wounded warrior, there is a wounded home--a family and community impacted by their loved one's war experiences. Service members returning from combat deployment all bring war home with them. And when a combat veteran struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI), every family member experiences the effects--confusion, hurt, anger, guilt, fatigue, and fear.
Wounded Warrior, Wounded Home offers a hope-filled way forward, giving hurting families a look inside the minds and hearts of combat veterans and guiding them to develop their own plan for physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness.
"No family, not even a military one, is ever prepared for the holes that war and conflict punch out of our loved ones. This is a must-read for anyone living with or loving individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury."--Lee Woodruff, bestselling coauthor, In an Instant; co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation; contributing editor to CBS This Morning
"A story of courage and hope and healing. Essential reading for all who love and are connected to the life and service of a combat veteran. For your sake, for your loved one's sake, get this book."--Dr. Richard J. Foster, author, Celebration of Discipline and Sanctuary of the Soul; founder of Renovarï¿½ Ministries International
"Knowledge, insight, support, and guidance to ease the adjustment experienced by all in the wake of combat. Carter and Orr provide a resource that brings hope and healing to those who love, work, and live with our returning service members."--Roger Staubach, Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Naval Academy graduate, and Vietnam veteran
