Zeigler, his life in pages in the memoir “Both Ends of the Barrel: From the Troop Surge to Fort Hood A Dozen Years in the Global War.

“Both Ends of the Barrel” is written simply yet evocative enough to make readers feel as if they’re standing in the author’s shoes and seeing things from the author’s perspective. This book shares the author’s journey of joining one of the most significant wars of the 21st century, the global war on terror. Then right after returning home coming from his second deployment, Patrick was caught right smack in the middle of the Fort Hood Massacre of November 5th, 2009, being shot four times with a direct blow to his head.
