Thirty Days with My Father: Finding Peace from Wartime PTSD is my personal story of the devastating effects the Vietnam War had on my family when my father returned home with PTSD. I never understood the war–or my father. It would be 30 years before I felt brave enough to ask for his story. This memoir reveals how my dad and I finally faced our demons of post-war trauma. It was only when we began to share our stories that we began to heal.
