Randy Horsak is a consulting engineer –scientist in Houston, Texas who specializes in forensic investigations. It was his penchant for investigating the “what happened, and why” that lead to the writing of this book.
Aside from studying Psychology 101 at the University of Texas in 1971, he has no formal training in psychology or psychiatry.
Aside from firing rifles and pistols, and popping firecrackers, he has no formal training in combat or military weaponry. He has never served in the military. Neither has he experienced 82 days of combat on a God-forsaken island called Okinawa, in one of the bloodiest battles in American history, in which you must live a life of “kill or be killed.”
He has, however, spent almost 60 years living in the midst of a family that has been impacted by a father who suffered severely from combat-related PTSD—Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Writing this book is Randy’s time to heal.
