Diagnoses for combat-related stress disorders are at their highest level in recent years even though fewer soldiers are being sent to war zones.  
Once a Warrior
Serving in a war zone changes everyone...
And, returning home can be even more challenging.


In his ground-breaking book and in his speaking presentations, Dr. Charles Hoge explains how transitioning home from combat requires learning how to dial up or down the warrior responses, depending on the circumstances. What medical professionals label as symptoms are, in fact, valuable combat survival skills, skills that may also be useful in civilian life. Once a Warrior - Always a Warrior explains how a warrior's knowledge and skills are vital for living at peace in an insane world.


"There's combat, then there's the rest of your life. We need survival skills for each battle zone. This is the guide to surviving the war back here. We all need it. A hell of a book. The lucky get it."



- Max Cleland, former U.S. Senator from Georgia, former Administrator of the Veterans Administration, decorated wounded combat veteran of the Vietnam War

Already a nationally-known advocate for eradicating the stigma of mental health care in the military, Dr. Hoge now reaches out to a larger community. Not only veterans, but their families, friends, coworkers, and health care providers will welcome this wealth of new insight and practical information.
 Once a Warrior-Always a Warrior is for anyone who has ever returned from a war zone (current service members, veterans, government workers, contractors), and describes how to successfully navigate the transition from the war zone - no matter how many days, months, or years have passed. The warrior's spouse, partner, and family members, as well as coworkers and health care providers will be enriched by Dr. Hoge's message.
