This post will be all about my upcoming book : “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and out of the Trenches of Life.”
I started writing this book in 2016. It has taken me a long time to finish it. The main reason is that I want to help my fellow veterans. I have rewritten several chapters, and added an interview section.
The interview section is what is taking so long. However, it will also be the best part of the book. There is nothing better than to have a veteran share what it was like for him in the trenches.
I am member of a new social network called RallyPoint that is just for military people and their families. It has been a true blessing for me. I have been sharing about my book and the excitement is high for the book. Many are asking when it will be done.
The book is getting many great endorsements. What follows is a couple of them:
Most of us are fortunate not to have experienced the stress of combat. Words cannot adequately define the grinding daily pressure of knowing that every time you step outside the gate the enemy will try to kill you and your buddies. You are constantly alert, on point; but how can you protect your team from the instantaneous blast of the IED? You are part of a highly-trained team poised to execute, but what has prepared you for the mental toll of being on edge every moment. The skills that helped you survive….have taken a toll and are now working against you when you return home. What do you do now; where do you turn? Whether you are dealing with PTSD, TBI, depression, homelessness, or recovering from wounds; Doug Bolton has answers…..this book has answers!

Although ‘Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life’ wasn’t written for men only, it brings honesty and openness to veterans, and military personnel about feeling ok to express fears and emotional challenges in a difficult world. US Army Retired Veteran, Mr. Douglas Bolton brings his personal stories to life in a way we all can relate to and gives a big “you’re ok” for revealing our shortcomings and encourages us to open up and talk. A must read for those seeking healing and forgiveness from ourselves and those wanting a fresh look on life.
