Love Our Vets

Love Our Vets by Welby O'Brien

About The Book:
Chances are that if your loved one has seen war, he or she has PTSD at some level, and you who love your veteran will also be deeply and profoundly affected. Now here is a comprehensive, practical book solely dedicated to addressing the cries and needs of the loved ones. Finally! A book that is geared toward your needs and issues - your cries. Love Our Vets answers more than 60 heartfelt questions, providing down-to-earth wisdom and much-needed tips for taking care of yourself. Sharing as a counselor and from her personal experience of living with a 100% disabled veteran with PTSD, Welby O’Brien gives hope, encouragement, and practical help for families and loved ones who are caught in the wake of the trauma. This book addresses a broad spectrum of issues and concerns and offers realistic wisdom from a wide variety of individuals who share from real hearts and lives. Welcomed by VA and other counselors, this is not just another book about PTSD; rather, it is a tremendous resource for families and loved ones who struggle heroically along with their vets to face the day-to-day challenges.

My Thoughts:
This is an amazing resource for Military Spouses! A lot of time the focus is on the Vet, and sometimes the caretakers and loved ones get pushed under the rug. This book is for them, for us! Great stories to help you know that you are not alone, and resources we could all use! 

About The Author:
Welby O’Brien is crazy about her husband, who is a 100% disabled veteran. Together they find fulfillment as they face the daily challenges of PTSD. For years, Welby stumbled alone in the dark  – desperate for guidance and support. Now she shares the lifelines of hope she finally found in her new book Love Our Vets: Restoring Hope For Families of Veterans With PTSD. Welby has a Master’s degree in counseling from Portland State University, and a teaching degree from Biola University. She has been welcomed as a guest speaker across the country, and on radio and television. She served as a book review editor and advice columnist. Welby initiated and continues to facilitate the spouse and family support network known as Love Our Vets. She lives what she writes.
