Who Will Have My Back

Who Will Have My Back is a collection of powerful short stories that describe the often overlooked, sometimes invisible sacrifice and devotion of our nation’s caregivers. Based upon personal interviews and first hand observations, Who Will Have My Back is a testament to the work these men, women, and organizations perform on behalf of America’s wounded warriors and fallen first responders.

The real images, feelings and memories captured in these stories offer a deeper understanding of not just what it means to accept the mantle of caregiver, but provides an intimate, personal glimpse into the real, everyday life experiences of actual caregivers.

No parent ever imagines standing by a son’s bedside, tasked with telling his or her own son or daughter, if he or she survives, that he or she has lost both legs and a hand. But when that son or daughter, whispers through lips still swollen from battlefield wounds, that he or she wants to walk again, it takes more than a parents’ love, to make and keep the promise to do everything they can to help them walk again, it takes a caregivers’ heart.

Who Will Have My Back lays bare, for all to see and feel, the caregiver’s heart.
