The essential handbook for anyone who has ever returned from a war zone, and their spouse, partner, or family members Being back home can be as difficult, if not more so, than the time spent serving in a combat zone. It's with this truth that Colonel Charles W. Hoge, MD, a leading advocate for eliminating the stigma of mental health care, presents "Once a Warrior--Always a Warrior, " a groundbreaking resource with essential new insights for anyone who has ever returned home from a war zone. "" In clear practical language, Dr. Hoge explores the latest knowledge in combat stress, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), mTBI (mild traumatic brain injury), other physiological reactions to war, and their treatment options. Recognizing that warriors and family members both change during deployment, he helps them better understand each other's experience, especially living with enduring survival skills from the combat environment that are often viewed as "symptoms" back home. The heart of this book focuses on what's necessary to successfully "navigate" the transition"--""LANDNAV" for the home front. "" "Once a Warrior--Always a Warrior" shows how a warrior's knowledge and skills are vital for living at peace in an insane world. *** "There's combat. Then, there's the rest of your life. . . . This is the guide to surviving the war back here. We all need it. A hell of a book." --Max Cleland, former U.S. Senator and VA Administrator, wounded Vietnam combat veteran "I've never met a mental health professional who 'gets it' as well as Colonel Charles Hoge. He's done the research, he's been shoulder-to-shoulder with warriors, and he's woven it together in language that is real and resonant. "Once a Warrior--Always a Warrior" is a vital handbook for every leader, and it is a survival book for warriors-come-home."--Nate Self, former Army Ranger Captain, author of "Two Wars: One Hero's Fight on Two Fronts--Abroad and Within" ""Once a Warrior, Always a Warrior" provides a uniquely valuable addition to the subject of Post Traumatic Stress in the military population because it comes from a soldier and a mental health professional who has years of real world, hands-on experience helping our warriors deal with these issues. Dr. Hoge possesses the rare gift of being able to translate the science from published research into the language of the warrior. . . . The book should also be required reading for mental health professionals." --James B. Peake, MD, former Secretary of Veteran Affairs (2007-2009), 40th Surgeon General of the U.S. Army, decorated combat veteran "Dr. Hoge has served his nation well by compiling a user-friendly guide to issues this generation faces in the long wars of Iraq and Afghanistan. Written in a language warriors can understand, he takes complex issues and delivers practical advice, tips, and strategies that are the antidote to suffering. . . . This book and the skills within it can serve as a first step in a journey toward resilience and positive growth."--Steve Robinson, SFC (Retired), Army Ranger, Veteran Advocate
