Trained in Hell, Living in Heaven
by Timothy Segrest
I guess the reason of this book is very much like the reason for my poetry books that Iíve published. It is an attempt to let society know about some of the things veterans deal with after being willingly forced to kill to protect out freedom, so they say. I also hope that our returning soldiers will be accepted and taken care of, despite misunderstood, harmless actions. I say that because I donít condone harming anyone. Itís true that not all of them have seen combat, however, Iím sure they have seen more than they desire. In addition, more than the average non-military citizen has seen.
Let me make something clear. My story is not a biography; however, it does hold some truths about me. I was a sniper, but I canít go any farther than that. This story is how I came to be a Special Forces sniper, and events in my childhood that led me to it. Actually, I feel I had no choice in the matter. My journeyís final leg takes you to the last moments in my life, and, with the help of my understanding wife, beyond as well.
