An Otherwise Healthy Person

Ron Jansen
Through a series of short stories and vignettes, follow the journey of a Marine squad leader as he leads thirteen men through intense, confusing, and deadly battles in and around Fallujah during a time when local tribes first began to turn against the Al Qaeda-backed insurgency. After surviving the war abroad, he returns home, assuming the fight is over, only to realize that the battle for his heart and soul is only just beginning.

Both harrowing and heart-warming (and at times even hilarious), An Otherwise Healthy Person gives a first-person account of the reality of war, the cost of love, and hope for what can happen through true surrender.
