Description

Twenty–two veterans take their own lives every day. The word ‘tragic’ only begins to describe the brokenness of this painful reality. Josh Holler, Marine Corps veteran and pastor, argues that veteran suicide is not primarily a problem born out of exposure to combat and PTSD, but out of a broken relationship between people and God. He tells some of the stories of men he has known and addresses the reality of the reason veteran suicide is such a problem.

Endorsements

Anyone can experience trauma and be devastated by the effects of PTSD. My brother and friend Josh has written a ‘must–read’ on this subject. His treatment of how trauma ‘rewires’ the brain and then proceeds to alter of life of the PTSD victim is masterful. But Josh doesn’t stop with the person, but takes the reader on a journey of hope, that employs the PTSD victim’s family, friends, pastors, chaplains, mental health professionals, the Holy Spirit and Scripture. Josh’s writings reinforce the notion that it does take a village to encourage, energize and experience the joy of a person’s recovery from the effects of trauma.

Holler provides an illuminating account of the grief and tensions resulting from his service as a Marine. He argues that many of the difficulties that veterans face when returning from deployments arise from the radical disparities between the values and traditions of the military and society. Whereas veteran suicides are often attributed to PTSD, Holler suggests that the isolation and lack of communal support are more decisive. Since the book applies Biblical analysis to military disciplines, it offers invaluable insights for Christians concerned with understanding and assisting veterans struggling with grief and loss of identity.
