Dedicated to other veterans and their families

This book is a collection of poetry of how I managed and dealt with

my PTSD symptoms. Every so often, I stopped and added a little

something attempting to explain the poetry, or sometimes just

something I thought you might need to know. It is real and I don't

sugar coat anything so if I feel profanity is needed, I use it. The term

"Hilda" refers to when we get bad intelligence and we have to change

a mission essential, and all Hell breaks. Most of it is war poetry but

some of it refers to everyday living things.

these poems, sorry- you'll have to answer that on your own.
