Robert Carson Krause presents an insightful portrayal of a family struggling with the ongoing aftermath of Vietnam. Well Done! Krause also writes about his struggle with PTSD and his and his belief that war is a senseless excercise in futility. According to Thomas Jefferson this book is about the need to select leades who believe war is the last solution and to quote him,"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects whatnever was and never will be." According to the United states department of Veteran Affairs, more than 5.2 million Americans suffer from Post Tramatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD,every year. This Disorder is a severe mental desease that can cause witnesses and victims of war, violent crimes and other traumatic events to believe that they are constantly in danger or send thm into a deep state of anxiety and depression.
