"Pulling readers beyond their comfort zones and into the darkest corners of modern warfare, Sgt. Goodrich asks us to look at unspeakable truths from the battlefield, cultural differences, religion, and the shaky hand that is American politics through unflinching eyes as reality spews from the pages. Fifty mesmerizing poems and prose recount the struggles military members endure when death stares them in the face and what happens when red lines fade into the darkness of the desert. Interwoven with inflexible truths and grotesquely beautiful imagery, these poems will resonate long after the final bullet is spent."
About the Author:
Ryan Goodrich is a medically retired U.S. Marine who lives a quiet life with his wife, son, and two dogs in Oregon. He is currently a successful Information Technology Manager, which reflects his many years as an Aviation Communications Technician while serving in the Marine Corps. Ryan holds a B.A. in English and a fire for the written word. His experiences in the military have taken him to more than twenty different countries around the world, where he has seen the best and worst of everything that makes us human. The good and bad have both shaped his harsh and passionate style, but the memories are more vivid than words will ever be able to express. It is his hope that fellow veterans and civilians alike will be able to understand and embrace what it means to serve one’s country and appreciate all that is so easily lost or forgotten.
