Being back home can be as difficult, if not more so, than
the time spent serving in a combat zone. It's with this truth that Colonel
Charles W. Hoge, M.D., a leading advocate for eliminating the stigma of mental
health care, presents Once a Warrior-Always
a Warrior, a groundbreaking resource with essential new insights for anyone
who has ever returned home from a war zone.

In clear, practical language, Dr. Hoge explores the latest knowledge in combat
stress, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), mTBI (mild traumatic brain
injury), other physiological reactions to war, and their treatment options.
Recognizing that warriors and family members both change during deployment, he
helps them better understand each other's experience, especially living with
enduring survival skills from the combat environment that are often viewed as
"symptoms" back home. The heart of this book focuses on what's
necessary to successfully navigate
the transition-"LANDNAV" for the home front.

Once a Warrior-Always a Warrior
shows how a warrior's knowledge and skills are vital for living at peace in an
insane world.
