Book Features Veterans with PTSD: “Fields of Combat”

National Public Radio aired the following piece June 2, 2011 on Talk of the Nation. You can hear the full story here.

In the book Fields of Combat, author Erin Finley documents the experiences of Iraq war veterans living with PTSD. She interviewed more than 60 veterans for the book and tells Conan that she’s familiar with stories like Pitts’.

She says the most successful veterans she’s encountered have been those who focus on serving others in their post-military careers.

“Whether that’s serving their community as a police officer or serving their family by having a career and supporting them,” she says, having a mission helps veterans with PTSD succeed.

NPR posted an excerpt of the book that you can read here.
