If this story empowers just one person to overcome challenges and live a better life, then this soldier has accomplished his mission.

“Both Ends of the Barrel: From the Troop Surge to Fort Hood A Dozen Years in the Global War” by Patrick L. Zeigler is a military memoir that describes the life of the author during his days in the armed force. He takes the readers directly to where the Fort Hood massacre happened in the paramedic’s testimony when a seriously injured Zeigler was recovered. Zeigler got shot four times, including on the right temple.

The memoir then takes the readers in Zeigler’s perspective during the event of the tragedy. It was the day when his carefree lifestyle developed into a serious one. It follows Zeigler and his experience during the 2009 massacre, which imprinted a memory that will be known in the pages of history. This memoir also memorializes the victims and his fallen military brothers.

Being in the military is difficult as one has to stay disciplined in all aspects. It might be easy to put on paper, but experiencing it includes the whole humanity of an individual. This is because he is challenged physically, mentally, spiritually, socially, and emotionally.

Patrick L. Zeigler uses his voice to help the readers and other veterans experiencing PTSD from their own experiences with war. He aims to empower readers to overcome challenges and live better lives. As he was striving to move forward, he was encouraged by his supporters to write down his experiences to get the opportunity to look back and also honor the fallen soldiers.
