Warrior Rising is a very personal and inspirational story of LCol Chris Linford's road to a diagnosis of PTSD after three operational deployments to the Gulf War, Rwanda, and Kandahar, Afghanistan. He recounts his associated war stories, but it was the traumas that impacted him so dramatically leading him to what he describes as the very edge of his personal and professional competence. Finally years later and after months of effective treatment he discovered new ways to improve his health further and has since become involved in peer counselling and ongoing support to veterans who need assistance. LCol Linford remains disappointed that PTSD is still being kept in the shadows worsening the stigma surrounding it; it's time to talk about the eight hundred pound elephant in the room! LCol Linford through this book addresses that elephant.
