Unbreakable Bonds: The Mighty Moms and Wounded Warriors of Walter Reed

We rated this book:


When our wounded warriors return from fighting overseas, the battle is not yet over. What comes after is long-term rehabilitation and recovery from the injuries these fighting men and women have suffered. In this short book, we get to see the relationship between these servicemen and their mothers, and the bond it forges between them. While the book is slim, it is very powerful and moving all the same. Each chapter focuses on a particular mother/son combination. It explores the traumas, uncertainties, and the road to leading a normal life. It brings us real life experience, for a culture that largely ignores the wounded and praises the ones who return home unharmed. This type of book is one to make you support the wounded veterans of America, and it does a good job of that by bringing the human side to it. This is not quite a memoir, but is recollections of the mother/son combination, and what they go through. And, this book will serve to help those whom are still recovering from the wounds they suffered while fighting in the military.
