"This is the best book on PTSD and vets I've ever read. Anyone who works with vets or is related to a vet needs this book. You won't regret it. As a professor, this book is definitely at the top of my reading list on PTSD. Welby O'Brien is honest, insightful, and incredibly compassionate. Gutsy and sensitive.

Love Our Vets was written as a practical book for the families and friends of vets who have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Affecting millions in the U.S. alone, PTSD is an issue approaching epidemic proportions. Certainly for the sufferer fighting through this disorder, life is fraught with difficulties and heartache. However, for every one person struggling with PTSD, there are significantly more friends and family members who are also deeply and profoundly impacted. While someone may not have PTSD themselves, if he or she is living with someone who does, he or she is in fact suffering from it as well.
Now families have a comprehensive, practical book solely dedicated to addressing their specific needs. Love Our Vets answers more than sixty heartfelt questions, providing readers down-to-earth wisdom and much-needed tips for taking care of themselves. Sharing as a counselor and from her personal experience of living with a 100% disabled veteran with PTSD, Welby O'Brien gives hope, encouragement, and practical help for families and loved ones who are caught in the wake of the trauma. This book addresses a broad spectrum of issues and concerns and offers realistic wisdom from a wide variety of individuals who share from real hearts and lives.
Recommended by VA and other counselors, Love Our Vets is a tremendous resource for families and loved ones who struggle along with their vets in the challenges it presents.
