A Line in the Sand is a true story of a Marine's suicide mission, chemical and biological warfare and the testing of experimental drugs on our military. Deceit, trauma, loss, sacrifice , love of country and war. Its all in this book. This is the story of a Marine's experiences in combat on the front lines of the first Gulf War and the world he encountered once he returned home.
I am the 23rd Veteran. The one whom chose life. After serving four years in the Marine Corps and two tours of duty on the front lines in the first Gulf War, I suffered from PTSD for more than 20 years. I lost everything.
After being through both the civilian and VA medical systems, I decided enough was enough. I was going to heal. Things had to change. I accepted responsibility for my life. Once I did that I was able to change it for the better by making different choices in order to get the results I desired. I embarked on a journey of self-reliance, awareness, positive thinking and natural, healthy healing practices.
Change, healing and thus life can be difficult. No one’s life is immune to this. It’s about how we all deal with our adversity and overcome it to become successful whatever success is to the particular individual.
A lot of this book is based on personal research, my life experiences and the application of what I learned from those endeavors towards the attainment of my goals. One of the things I wanted to accomplish was to place the plethora of information that is available on Veteran’s issues and healing into one convenient location that is easily accessible for all. This book can be a guide which you can work from and reference as you take your healing journey.

The Chrysalis is specifically about Robert's struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that he developed because of his experiences as a United States Marine fighting in the first Gulf War. It describes all of the events of his life and everything he encountered and suffered through for over 20 years. It describes his experiences dealing with the civilian and VA medical systems, the copious amounts of medication they put Robert on and how this caused his health to decline even further. This resulted in him contemplating ending his life twice, ending up in a wheelchair, losing everything he owned, losing his job and ultimately filing bankruptcy. It highlights the current deplorable situation our Veterans are in with the VA and the Government. This book also shows how Robert accepted responsibility for his life, decided to turn it around on his own, become successful with it and how that process took six years to accomplish. By reading this book you will benefit from his life and gain more than 20 years of knowledge, insight and experiences that you can apply to your own life and the lives of others!
