Summary "Our scars, both visible and invisible, are not just reminders of the incredible highs and lows of our past. They are much more than that. They are the gateway to our future. Memories of combat do not have to be curses. To those brave enough to face them, they offer the means to move forward in life, not burdened by past experiences but transformed by wisdom paid for in blood, sweat, and tears. These opportunities pose serious challenges rarely mentioned in our training--a knowledge gap that leaves us exposed to predictable, but needless, injuries. Closing this gap requires us to take action. Individual action. We've not been trained for the phase of the Warrior's Journey that continues beyond the battlefield. This books is a reconnaissance into the dangers, and opportunities, of this final stage. The challenges of coming home are real. Continuing Actions can help you overcome them and finally, fully, return home"--Back cover.
