As soldiers who have just returned from war, we fight a separate war daily in an attempt to leave the war behind. Many soldiers, just like myself, come home from war only to fight a separate internal battle, with debilitating illnesses such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. It was important for me to share my story not only for myself but for those who have fought, for those who have fallen, and for those who continue to wage war in order for the United States of America to continue to remain free. The price of freedom is not free. War is chaos, and many soldiers bear the scars from it for the rest of our lives.

About the Author:

On the seventeenth day of February 1987, author and poet Michael Lee Womack was born in the small town of Sanford, North Carolina. Eighteen years later, he would make a decision that would forever change his life. Just a month after graduating high school, he would enlist into the United States Army on the thirtieth of June 2005. From there, he would embark on a journey unlike any other. He attended One Station Unit Training at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Upon the completion of his training, he was relocated to the Twenty-Fifth Infantry Division’s Schofield Barracks inside of Hawaii. Once there, he would become a part of a band of brothers that would eventually become like family to him. His first unit was just like any first because it will always be special to him. The Third Squadron, Fourth US Cavalry Regiment took him on a three-year tour of the army, and fourteen months of that included a 2006–2007 tour of Iraq. After a three-year stint of being with the Third Squadron, Fourth US Cavalry Regiment, he had decided that it was time to explore the army even more. He reenlisted for another three years and relocated back to Fort Knox, Kentucky. This go around, he found himself working as the OPFOR that assisted in the training of freshly new army lieutenants with the First Squadron, Sixteenth US Cavalry Regiment. Here he would work countless hours in the rain and snow to ensure that these lieutenants were prepared to take on their next mission and ready to lead their own soldiers into war. After a year of training lieutenants, this seasoned soldier was ready to move on. The year is now 2009, and after four long years of being a 19 Delta Cavalry Scout, he decided that he would like to specialize in a new military occupation. Fort Gordon, Georgia, would be his next stop, and after an extensive amount of training with satellites, he would become a 25 Sierra / Satellite Operator/ Maintainer. After completing his training, Fort Stewart, Georgia, would be his new home away from home. The year is now 2010, and after less than a month of being a soldier in the Third Infantry Division, this dogface soldier was headed for his second deployment to Iraq. From 2010 to 2011, he would encounter an eleven-month deployment to Iraq, and on the twenty-seventh of May 2014, he was medically discharged from the United States Army. It is now almost a year later, and Sergeant Womack has now pieced together his next published book, From a Soldier’s Perspective. He hopes that you gain much insight from it on what life was like for him as a soldier, as well as what life has been like for him as a veteran.

Review:

"A Powerful, Moving and Heartfelt Poetic Masterpiece. Each poem takes the reader on a journey through the harsh realities of war, pain, and the suffering that veterans like Michael Lee Womack must contend with long after they've left the battlefield. Mr Womack bares his soul, and hits the reader with vivid imagery of his tours in Iraq, and his brothers in arms who lost their lives there. Thank you for your service and for all you've sacrificed Michael Lee. Thank you for writing From a Soldier's Perspective. I hope that sharing your pain with the world has helped you heal and find peace."  - Rafael Hines, author of Bishop's War

"Mr. Womack has poured his heart out in rhyme and verse. Several times while reading this I had to put it down and come back to it later. It truly is an awakening to what our brave men and women go through while keeping our country safer, and the aftermath. PTSD is real. I appreciate Mr. Womack for allowing himself to be vulnerable enough to give us a picture of the pain, frustration, and weariness of military life. Thank you, sir, for your many years of service to our country. This is, I hope, just the beginning of your journey as a poet." - Mary Finley, author of THICKER THAN BLOOD I and II
