I thought I would share some great endorsement coming in for my upcoming book. Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.
There are many. but I will just share some of the ones I cherish right now.
Signs of Hope for the Military: in and Out of the Trenches of Life, is a must read book for any military, which are hurting from PTD, TBI, anxiety, depression, etc. It has extensive valuable and doable suggestions for successful cope mechanisms. I have also enjoyed Doug Bolton sharing his own stories about his time in the military. He shows that he has been there and done that. This makes him very qualified to offer his advice, guidance and support.
I applaud Doug for his insight and wiliness to share. I know you will too.
