Gentlemen,

I'm a former USN intel officer. I joined the military to make my dad proud. It worked a little bit, but as time went by it became clear that I was neglecting what I needed. I needed to confront my past, 7 yrs of sexual abuse as a child, while my dad was a successful navy pilot. What can you do. I was diagnosed with severe PTSD in 2010. I thought the condition was only for those who were traumatized by battle, so it was odd for me to hear, since I was no more than a pencil-pusher during Operation Enduring Freedom in sunny, comfortable Manama, Bahrain. Anyways, the reason I post is because I wrote a book recently and it includes a lot of military-related issues that I have worked through not only as a military member, but as a military brat. The book is being sold on Amazon and the rest of the e-book platforms, but if you want to borrow the book for free, please go to 1in6.org and they'll send you one. If you want to see a preview you can probably read the front part on Amazon, to see if it relates. Nice To Meet Me is the name.

V/r,

Chris

Ok, Chris.

It's downloading to my iphone. If only you were Air Force, I would like you better....

...Just kidding. I never joined the military, but my dad was a fighter pilot. I look forward to reading the book. Thanks.

Jim

I just bought your book Chris. The reviews here were just too compelling.

Allan/Jim/senbar -

Thanks, and I hope that my experiences are helpful. My feeling is that there are so many military vets with CSA or other abuse in their past. Many of us joined the service partly because we were searching for our own sense of masculinity.

The book is not a military book, but it weaves its way in and out of my recovery, so at the very least I hope you can relate.

Chris
