One of the many and varied volumes available at the online bookstore of Marine Parents online, a few of which we’re going to feature here. We’ve also noted other resources—books, articles, websites, merely a scratching of the surface of a vast array available in many media—on our delicious thread. Just follow the Reentry tag. If anyone following or stopping by would like to recommend other works, drop a note and we’ll include them, willingly.     
That said, one aside: for anyone who doesn’t know the play ReEntry (yet!), but maybe is considering seeing it—and you should, if you’re anywhere nearby—don’t get the impression from some of these materials that it’s all about PTSD, TBI, and war damage. These come up in the conversation that makes up the play, because it’s based directly on interviews with a range of Marines, some of whom are wounded in various ways; but by no means does the topic dominate the play. These are facets of the larger inquiry into “reentry” covered in the show, from many perspectives.
