Life After Loyalty
A War Writers’ Campaign Novel
The emotional costs of the War on Terror on the lives of the U.S. service members and their families will likely take decades to fully understand. So many Americans who have directly supported combat operations in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11 came home changed. Life After Loyalty explores the often lesser visible effects of deployment on combat support personnel, the ones who may not believe their experiences were traumatic enough to warrant attention. The ones who believe their general lack of excitement and motivation after returning home is just a normal part of readjustment. Most importantly, Life After Loyalty explores how these subtle changes can wreak havoc on family and life satisfaction for those that have served.
