A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home, however, the pressures of his physical wounds, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. In constant physical pain, he soon found himself unable to climb a simple flight of stairs or face a bus ride to the VA hospital. He drank; he argued; he cut himself off from those he loved. Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever....
This is a moving memoir about overcoming obstacles, finding love and finding a way to heal. This honest look at one veteran's life imparted a message that I will never forget. As an active duty Army officer myself, I salute my fellow brother in arms for having the courage to tell this story. I think it is fair to say that through his own story, Luis Carlos Montalvan speaks on behalf of so many others who haven't found their own voice yet. People can survive PTSD...it takes a lot of love and support! What can I say about this memoir's hero...Tuesday is truly a ROCK STAR!
