When Nadine Brinton enlisted in the military at 18, she had no idea that war, deployment and PTSD awaited her; from despair to triumph, this is the story of how one young woman overcame the obstacles of combat to become a doctor . As a naïve, high school senior who enlisted in June 2000, Nadine soon found herself in the middle of the Iraqi dessert, skirting IED explosions, watching the dissolution of her young marriage, manning a guard tower on the Tigris River, and managing an increasingly tenuous battle with depression and illness. Part coming-of-age story, part war story, Nadine’s candid experiences chronicle the fate that thousands of U.S. service members have endured. Silent and out-of-view from the American public, their sacrifices are no longer headline news. The memory of their experiences are starting to fade.
