Pamela Foster

Author Pamela Fosterabout this book: My Vietnam vet husband stepped on a landmine just outside Danang in '65. While Jack deals with the physical results of that misstep every day, it's the psychological trauma of war that is now, and has always been, his biggest challenge. For twenty-five years, Jack and I have been content to build a life around his post-traumatic stress disorder, his war trauma. Then Jack's physical limitations combined with the natural aging process and, at sixty-five, the traveling, and re-locating, and just plain outrunning the symptoms of PTSD, no longer worked. Our marriage began to unravel.

The essays in My Life with a Wounded Warrior were written at a time when the two of us could not say good morning without ripping each other apart with a hard look or a sharp word. The marriage was over unless we figured out how to change old, now defunct, patterns of behavior. The honesty of these essays allowed us to change, to see our relationship from a new perspective. These insights open a curtain on day-to-day life with a man who has been to war. If you love one of these men, you'll recognize him immediately in these pages. If you're only connection to PTSD is on the evening news, this book will give you laughter and tears and expose the human cost of war.
