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.
Joshua D. Holler
Joshua is a Marine Corps veteran and deployed to Iraq twice between 2007–2009 with 1st Battalion 7th Marine Regiment. He is a pastor at First Baptist Church of Duncan in Duncan, Oklahoma, where he lives with his wife and children.
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.
