Combat has a way of tearing your life back to the studs: back to your first childhood trauma. For me it was child sexual abuse. The problem is that you don't understand this at first. Then you're putty in the hands of any caretaker or institution playing the Good Samaritan. For me it was the VA. At some point I said "Fuck it. Enough is enough." And I started fighting back. MINDY'S FIGHT is about how I've fought back.
