Is War Ever Left Behind?

“The touched and untouched will carry scars; some on the outside — all on the inside.”

Of all the important stories I have written, “War Springs Eternal” is the one of which I am most proud. 

It was written for those who sacrificed so much, yet asked for so little.

“I am no longer the boy who came here, nor am I the man I was destined to be.”

Does a returning war veteran ever escape the horrors to which they bore witness?

Shell shock was the terminology of WWI, today it is PTSD.

Whatever it is called, it has long and lasting effects.

War Springs Eternal is dedicated to my brothers and sisters in arms –

-To those who were asked to do the unthinkable.
-To those who HAD to do the unimaginable.
-To those who are broken and still fighting.
-To those for whom the fighting became too much.

 



“Who am I?”

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales. I am an author of scarcely any renown. However, as a storyteller, I know who I am, and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable.
