Bradford Smithabout this book: Last week I had a man standing in front of my desk who was destroying his life...at 18 years of service in the Army, he couldn't stop drinking...and it was destroying him. He'd lost his marriage, was losing his job two years short of retirement eligibility. I feared what he might lose next.
For 20 years I've witnessed this tidal wave of destruction in the military. Countless young men have stood in front of my desk after making life-changing decisions while under the influence of alcohol.
For the last seven years as a foster parent, I've witnessed countless families torn apart by illicit drug use and alcoholism, children abandoned and abused. The sheer volume is stunning.
This scourge is an epidemic of truly biblical proportions and it is destroying the fabric of our nation. Everything is undergirded in some way, it seems, by alcohol and drug addiction. I pray that through this work, many might be made aware and many might take action.
