Description

From the Revolutionary War through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, this book is the first to document and link the often bittersweet experiences of American veterans coming home from war. Published in co-operation with the Association of the United States Army, Richard Taylor delves into memoirs, diaries, and interviews to show how war changed these men and women and how they learned to deal with their experiences. To chronicle their struggles throughout U.S. history, Taylor opens each chapter with a battlefield vignette designed to take the reader back to a given conflict. This is followed by an explanation of the situation at home and the reception veterans faced upon their return, including the evolving response of the federal government to veterans' needs and benefits. Among the issues Taylor explores are social readjustment and acceptance, job training and placement, medical care and disability compensation, education, retirement, and burial. The work also discusses the treatment of women and minority veterans. About the Author Col. Richard H. Taylor, USA (Ret), is a Vietnam veteran and the author of Prodigals: A Vietnam Story. A resident of Bend, OR, he is a defense contractor who served as an advisor in Iraq and Afghanistan.
