From the Introduction…
“The reality of war is that everyone gets wounded. Some wounds heal rapidly, but some last for a lifetime. The reality is that the wounds of a heart, soul and spirit have a spiritual component that is not being adequately addressed. Despite the valiant efforts of many organizations ant eh commitment of billions of dollars to address these issues, there remains a serious gap – the faith gap.”
– Major General (Retired) Robert F. Dees, U.S. Army, former Executive Director, Cru Military Ministry
From the Prologue…
“My family and I thought leaving the Army would remove me from the dangers of war. But upon leaving the Army, I entered a different kind of fight: the war for my own heart and mind. I went face-to-face with many memories, with the horrors and stresses of combat – and lost.”
Questions and doubts ravaged my mind: Why did I survive and my men die? Why did they send me there? Why does God allow such horrible wars to happen? Why can’t I feel anything?
Ashamed of the man I had become and unable to reconcile war, I reached a breaking point. I was highly praised and decorated for leadership under fire – yet I anguished in the aftermath of war. I realized I was about to lose everything : my marriage, my family, even my life. I had led a daring rescue mission and found myself in dire need of rescuing. I had fought to keep a promise – to never leave a fallen comrade – but who would keep that promise to me?”
– Former Captain Nathan Self, U.S. Army Ranger, author of Two Wars
