Surviving Combat Memories
Surviving with aftermath of Vietnam War
After surviving the horrors of combat, reentering civilian life seems like the easiest thing to do. But what if the enemy follows you home?
Russell Warriner served a tour in Vietnam with the 1st Cavalry Division and spent a total of eight years, nine months, and twenty-one days in the US Army. Then he learned he had post-traumatic stress disorder—something veterans face worldwide and often for a lifetime. Russ has been dealing with the memories of combat—his “Combat Demons”—ever since his return.
In Surviving Combat Memories, Russ shares how he finds solace in writing about his combat life and the aftermath. He also became a lifetime member of many veteran groups, started a group that served in his type of unit, and created a POW/MIA weekend event—all of which have served him well in dealing with his demons.
