Patrick Thibeault

Author Patrick Thibeaultabout this book: The real life story of a combat medic serving to save. The author writes about his experiences both in combat and peacetime. Serving as a wet behind the ears medic during operation desert storm and again as a older seasoned combat veteran in Afghanistan.

My Journey as a Combat Medic covers issues such as post traumatic stress disorder and the author was inspired to write for closure, as he dealt with ptsd himself, and to share the true life story as a combat medic.

The readers of this ebook include friends and family members who have loved ones who have served, medical professionals and anyone else interested in reading about what a combat medic does.

The hardest part of writing My Journey as a Combat Medic was the chapter on PTSD. To open these wounds and to expose them, but to not write about them would not fully do justice. Many veterans deal with PTSD, more understand means more healing.

My Journey as a Combat Medic is the story of the warrior healer. A warrior by trade and a healer by choice.

 A must read for everyone

I read the ebook and my o my, it was an eye opener for me. Finally, a story about the average guy doing something special. From the pictures, the author Patrick looks like a big man, but with a big heart. I went to his website and watched the video on the front page and it stirred emotions in me.

After watching the video trailer and getting a glimpse of what the combat medic does, I have to say, I salute you. The chapter about PTSD touched me, even made me cry. It is refreshing for a man to open up about how he deals with PTSD. Sadly many of our combat veterans are coming home from war and keeping everything inside.

I wish they would make this ebook into a soft cover book the same way the ebook is. I recommend this for everyone to read, Mothers, Fathers, nurses, and anyone the least bit curious about the role of the combat medic. I did not understand what a combat medic was until I read this book. It was educational for me as well. [by Phyillis from Dayton, Ohio]
