Hi DH gave me a great idea for earning some money and that is to sell all the books I read during his deployment. I have set up a paypal account, of course will provide tracking information from UPS and any other information buyer would like to feel reassured about any transactions. My first book for sale is as follows...

"Soft Spots" by Sergeant Clint Van Winkle
A Marine's memoir of combat and post-tramatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Marine Sergeant Clint Van Winkle left for war on Valentine's Day 2003. His battalion was among the first wave of troops that crossed into Iraq, and his first combat experience was the battle of Nasiriyah, followed by patrols throughout the country, house-to-house searches, and operations in the dangerous Baghdad slums. However, after he returned home, certain images would not leave his memory - a fragmented metnal movie of shooting a little girl; of scavenging parts from a destroyed, blood-spattered Amphibious Assault Vehicle; of obliterating several Iraqi men hidden behind an ancient wall; of bodies lying on streets, and the feral dogs that fed on them; and of mistakenly stepping on a "soft spot," the remains of a Marine killed in combat. Van Winkle was afflicted by flashbacks and sudden rages that he tried to suppress with alcohol. Diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, he sought help at a Veterans Administration hospital, where he received a cursory examination, a few pills, and a pat onthe back. As Van Winkle fought to suppress the horrid images, he also struggled to find a place in an indifferent society that had little sympathy for the war he'd fought, the friends he'd lost, or the duty he'd upheld. From riveting scenes of combat violence, to the gallows humor of Marines fighting a war that seems to make no sense, to moments of tenderness in a civilian life ravaged by flashbacks, rage, and doubt, "Soft Spots" reveals the ind of a combat veteran like no other recent memoir of the war that has consumed America...
