“I served in the U.S. Army during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. War, in many ways, was the best and worst thing I ever participated in. This book is about some of the issues veterans of this war face once they came back home. They had to reconcile their pride in serving their country with the outcome of the war in which they fought.
I joined the military for many reasons but certainly not to be the bad guy. I bought into the idea of serving my country and the U.S. being this great force for freedom and democracy. With the Iraq war, it was hard to pretend what my country did was right. This exploration started as a way to find my personal peace and ultimately the work was created to serve a greater audience.”
