Peace at Last by Deborah L. Grassman
A must read for any one caring for a veteran at the end of life, Peace at Last brings enlightment to their journey. Whether you are part of the core care team, their caregiver, a family member or their volunteer, Karen brings forth a guide on understanding veterans and how many factors may affect them at the end of life. Karen has extensive insight into helping veterans deal with issues that are unique to them and she has shared those with us in Pease at Last. The greatest lesson I took away was this beautiful statement – “We heal our nation one soldier at a time…one gratitude at a time…one apology at a time.”
Chicken Soup for the Veteran’s Soul
Chicken Soup for the Veteran’s Soul is both inspirational and touching for veterans, families, and those who are not familiar with the experiences of veterans. This book will bring new appreciation for the freedoms for which they fought.
A compelling collection of the true-life experiences of extraordinary men and women in every branch of service, who changed the course of history by their acts of valor in World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War. This book relates heroic deeds, acts of compassion and empathy, fears confronted, and victories attained. Although 27 million people have served in the military, this book gives helpful insight to the vast number of people who have not served and opens a window into the experiences of those who put their lives on the line for the rest of us.
This is a wonderful tribute to anyone who gave in service to their country, as well as to their families, and is worth reading and digesting.
