Why You Need This Book.
Blurring the lines between fiction and nonfiction, Don’t Shoot Your Future Self is a powerful story that shines a light on the unique challenges veterans face after leaving the military.
The statistics on veteran mental health are horrific. According to a 2020 report, roughly 17 veterans die by suicide each day in the US. This means meaning more veterans die by suicide every two days than were killed in action last year! This staggering statistic is why Don’t Shoot Your Future Self rings true to 24 million veterans around the world who have some type of personal struggle after returning home. As the Coronavirus surges forward, we have seen an increase in mental health conditions among all Americans. The wisdom and insights in this book are more timely and relevant than ever before.
Through the fictional story of “David Little”, the book not only gives veterans motivation and encouragement, but it also provides them with a pathway for transitioning to post-military life.
Of course, this personal development is a must-read for military veterans, but it also appeals to non-veterans because it offers timeless and universal business and success principles applicable to all people. This book is a valuable resource for military families or anyone with loved ones in the service. It offers a glimpse into the reality of the veteran experience and readers can learn more about what their loved one is going through and how they can help.
Whether you are a veteran or not, Don’t Shoot Your Future Self is an unforgettable story about life, relationships, and the power we all have to create a lasting imprint on the people we meet and know.
