Author/Artist Review

Author: Michael C. Hodges, M.D.
Located in: Fayetteville, NC
Submitted: June 14, 2007

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am currently a cardiologist in private practice in Fayetteville, NC. I spent 11 years on active duty repaying my scholarship to the Army. My wife is a pediatrician and we have three elementary age children.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I kept the journal for the benefit of my young children so that they would have a detailed account of what I did during the war. I was inspired to convert the journal into a book based on the feedback I received from friends and family after I had returned home.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  This book is the condensed version of the journal I kept during the initial year of the war while I was serving at an Army Combat Support Hospital in Iraq. Readers will gain new insight into our daily experiences and the challenges we faced as health care providers during a war.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My book is dedicated to my wife and children who were the real heroes in my year long deployment.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I was pleasantly surprised that God used the deployment to draw me closer to him and my faith actually grew in the midst of the hardship.
