For many of these soldiers, personal battles are not left on the sands in Iraq and Afghanistan. For many of them, when they return home, whether physically and mentally intact or not, they discover that there are other wars to be fought on the home-front. These wars range from external wars with their own government to internal wars within their own lives.In this volume of poems, our heroic soldiers who have been, and those who still are involved with the battles in the Middle East, know that war is hell. And so should the rest of us.
