American Airman, a memoir of a wounded veteran
Book Description
Since 9/11, over 30,000 veterans have died by suicide — 4x the number of U.S. military
personnel who’ve died in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. American Airman is about a
veteran channeling his pain into a new life purpose. It tells a life story from enlistment to
a near fatal injury while on active-duty and then through transitioning into civilian life.
American Airman is a story of vulnerability and resiliency. It bears witness to the men
and women who, in fighting for our rights and freedoms, make unimaginable sacrifices
and then must search for a new normal after sacrifice becomes reality.
