“PROPERTY OF THE U.S. ARMY” They had stamped it on his T-shirt, his footlocker, and the plastic stock of his M-16. Decades later, he’d find they’d stamped it on his soul. Ed was just twenty years old when a Vietcong landmine ripped off both his legs below the knee. After only four months and four days in combat, Ed found himself in a hospital bed fighting for his life — a life he would barely recognize when he returned to his small-town Ohio home. After five decades of struggling through alcoholism, drugs, failed marriages, and physical abuse, Ed shares his story for the first time, processing the lifelong impact of combat … of coming home to a nation that didn’t want him … of physical and mental wounds that never fully healed.As Ed reveals his truths to readers, he discovers something for himself: that war is hell but that life and liberty are always worth fighting for.
