New York, NY (July 2, 2016) – Phoca Press, the Naval Special Warfare publisher, celebrates the launch of One Step at a Time A Navy SEAL Vietnam Combat Veteran’s Journey Home. Author and Montana native Greg Burham came home to an ungrateful nation. Carrying the invisible wounds of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder before the medical profession understood the condition, Greg struggled to take the next steps in his life after leaving the SEAL Teams. The book launches on the 4th of July.
Seeking answers, a challenge and renewal, he embarked on a journey of discovery and healing almost 4,000 miles from Alaska to Mexico. With every step, he grew stronger in his faith in God, in himself and in others, eventually finding his place in the world helping people deal with trauma, from troubled teens, to combat veterans, to 9/11 first responders.
Phoca Press founder and CEO Tom Hawkins commented on the book’s publication: “Greg Burham went on after his time on the SEAL Teams to become one of the most productive members of our society, despite dealing with the difficulties of PTSD. His work bringing PTSD discussion to the forefront in the Navy SEAL community was ground breaking and essential. His inspiring story is a great narrative, a remarkable journey of life and healing, and every reader will want to grab their hiking boots and hit the road.”
Read about Greg’s epic hike that put him on a path to his life’s work, helping people deal with PTSD–including veterans of the North Vietnamese Army. His work has played a role in removing the stigma that has prevented SEALs from getting help in the past and that is putting an end to the emotional pain our nation’s hero veterans too often suffer.
