Another lifetime ago, I was a Marine. I know they say once a Marine, always a Marine but as the years increase between my time in and now it becomes harder to still feel like one. The one thing that hasn’t changed is that I still talk to may of the people I served with.
Yesterday I got a message from one of my friends from my last duty station. She has been a long time supporter of my writing career and a constant cheerleader and critic. Like so many veterans, she suffers from PTSD. She deals with it by helping other service members work through theirs. This girl is amazing and is a source of inspiration.
Any who, she asked me to ghost write her story for her. And I instantly said yes. I mean how could I say no. I’m a little nervous because I’ve never done anything like this before but she has the utmost faith and all I can do is try. She said I was her first choice when the idea came to her.
Now I can help the person who has helped so many learn to live with or defeat their demons. Let’s go Team Liz!!!!
