Brutally honest, unedited, and completely candid look inside the mind of a dedicated, patriotic, and talented US Army EOD technician who nearly lost everything in order to save himself. A look at how nearly everyone around him reacted (or didn’t) once he took a knee and admitted that he had a serious problem. While most whom he knew simply avoided him, others completely turned their backs to him, yet some even higher-level leaders (whom he should have been able to trust the absolute most) proved their toxicity by actually betraying not only his trust, but also his unwavering loyalty, probably making some things even worse.
Still Standing will stand as a raw testament of the pain of defeat, the strength of friendship, and the power of love.

This is essentially the story of my life. The invisible wounds that haunt us. I hope that this book is an inspiration to those who read it. In writing this book I have been told is extremely therapeutic although to be honest I am just now starting the task at hand. I live my life daily in mental and physical pain, but I consider myself fortunate to have travelled the journey.
There are others that are far worse off than me and others better off than me that is just the way it is. All of them however are the bravest and most selfless people you will ever meet. This book isn’t proof read it is from the heart, It is raw, a former soldier telling his story in the hopes to inspire others.
I have left my name and everyone except my wife’s name out to honor their privacy. There will be grammar mistakes, probably sentences you’ll have to read over again but I intended it to be that way to show that it comes from the heart.
