From World War I until today, the United States has failed to provide adequate transition support to millions of veterans leaving military service. Instead of providing meaningful jobs, access to quality health care and education, and fair and equitable housing, veterans learn that when their military service is done, they are now fighting a new battle – a failed bureaucracy which has let them and other veterans down for the past 100 years.

Reviews:

This seminal book reveals the truth of the matter in ways no other piece on war’s aftermath has undertaken….that the off switch for the war room in our heads simply doesn’t exist and that the fog of war will never be rescinded. And how very refreshing that LTC (RET) Parent has not strayed from the bona fide facts of recent wars; that military might remains handcuffed by political correctness, allowing evil to proliferate both across the pond and on US soil. Plainly and simply, this book nails it. Anyone who has worn the uniform in time of war must make this required reading. That’s an order!
— Dr. Kathy Platoni, Clinical Psychologist, COL (RET), US Army; Veteran, ODS, OIF, and OEF (GTMO and Afghanistan), Survivor, Fort Hood Massacre

This book offers a compelling and personal look at the varied experiences of veterans after returning from our most recent wars. Through narrative and personal stories, it conveys the critical role and power of human connection and meaningful work in making the transition back.
— M. Tracie Shea, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior
