Twentytwo veterans take their own lives every day. The word tragic only begins to describe the brokenness of this painful reality. Josh Holler, Marine Corps veteran and pastor, argues that veteran suicide is not primarily a problem born out of exposure to combat and PTSD, but out of a broken relationship between people and God. He tells some of the stories of men he has known and addresses the reality of the reason veteran suicide is such a problem.

Josh Holler gives an excellent perspective on how the trauma of war, the comradery among enlisted warriors, and the grief of suicide intersect with the good news of the Gospel. I wish I could have read Redeeming Warriors before I deployed with the 821st TC BN in 2011. I think I would have been a better chaplain if I had done so.-- J. Alan Branch
... a candidly engrossing account of the veterans struggle with suicide ideation. ... an essential read for those who have served in the military or desirous of helping the vet appropriately reengage civilian culture.
Josh doesnt stop with the person, but takes the reader on a journey of hope, that employs the PTSD victims family, friends, pastors, chaplains, mental health professionals, the Holy Spirit and Scripture. Joshs writings reinforce the notion that it does take a village to encourage, energize and experience the joy of a persons recovery from the effects of trauma.-- Mike Higgins
... an important resource for greater understanding and empathy. May it equip many to minister with compassion to those at risk and to walk alongside those who have suffered loss.-- Albert Y. Hsu
