Laguna Niguel, Calif. (PRWEB) November 04, 2016
In a story published by Military Times, an average of 20 veterans commit suicide each day, with more than 7,400 veterans who took their own lives as of 2014. Due to the number of veteran suicides, Byron Rodgers writes his debut book “Finding Meaning After the Military” (published by Xlibris) as a survival manual for veterans transitioning into the battle of life in the first civilian division.
The author thinks that it is normal that a former combatant will feel a meaningless, cold and lonely life after time in the military. Rodgers, who had previously joined the military, writes an optimistic perspective after experiencing significant changes in his life. He realized that he will live to empower others.
In “Finding Meaning After the Military,” the author himself is the main character. “I am the veteran who went through the struggle that I believe gives me the right and ability to speak to those in the veteran community struggling with the problems of readjustment and adaptation to life outside of the military,” Rodgers tells.
An excerpt from the book:
As a grunt in the US Marine Corps, I had to figure out the answers to these questions myself upon my transition into the first civilian division. I thought I had it all figured out when I left 31L Company weapons platoon squad bay for the last time because of what I had gone through during training and combat while I was in. Little did I know that I was about to engage in the most difficult fight for my life that I would ever know.
