Availability: Ready to download

Some wars don't end, some scars don't heal and some bonds can't be broken. Former U.S. Army Ranger Medic, Leo Jenkins, picks up where he left off with the best selling book, "Lest We Forget" to explore the tribulations associated with attempting to reintegrate into society after years at war. In what is being considered one of the most significant introspective on veteran Some wars don't end, some scars don't heal and some bonds can't be broken. Former U.S. Army Ranger Medic, Leo Jenkins, picks up where he left off with the best selling book, "Lest We Forget" to explore the tribulations associated with attempting to reintegrate into society after years at war. In what is being considered one of the most significant introspective on veteran transition issues ever written, Jenkins lays it all on the line one more time with On Assimilation, A Ranger's Return From War. "This is the real-deal, prolific prose of reality. Leo lays out the before, during and aftermath mentality of combat beautifully; furthermore, why we love it and each other in ways that so few can understand. You say you don't understand why combat vets are the way they are or don't know what we go through; "On Assimilation" is your textbook." ~Boone Cutler, Host of Tipping Point "The greatest love story a man could ever read comes from Leo Jenkins and his book On Assimilation: A Ranger's Return From War. This is not some sappy romance type of love story but rather one based on true love—love of a brotherhood, love of friends and family, and love of life. For anyone wishing to understand the trials and tribulations that come upon leaving military service, especially from one who served as an Army Ranger Medic, Special Operator, or just any seasoned combat professional, this is a must read. Leo lays it all out on the surface exposing his true self as not only a warrior but a lover, a lover in the most badass of badass means." ~Kerry Patton, author of Contracted: America's Secret Warriors.

    I have a very close mutual friend with Leo so I might be a bit biased but i guess I would have probably never heard of him or anything he did with out that friend in common. That being said I can only say that this book was a real eye opener into the problems our veterans face when returning home. It made me disgusted with our citizens that we can let these people go to war for our freedom, but we can't help them assimilate when they return home.

It made me disgusted with our citizens that we can let these people go to war for our freedom, but we can't help them assimilate when they return home. Obviously it is a long and hard process to get them back to where they feel a part of the civilian society, but there should be much more that we, as a nation, are doing for them. So many times I fought off tears just thinking about what he was going through without knowing how to ask for it. I believe this book is a must read for any person, veteran or civilian. Maybe after reading it people would better understand the massive amounts of problems our veterans face every day. I will continue to read anything Leo puts out there.

    I think this is a book that all Americans should read to better understand what our veterans deal with upon leaving the military and entering civilian life. There are some grammatical issues in the book, but the story was so compelling that I was able to overlook them. We can't understand what it's like to return from war unless we've been in it, but in reading this book, we can try our best to understand what our returning soldiers are dealing with.

    Great book You read this book and you know this is Leo's story, yet change the missions, names of friends, names of ex wives, girlfriends, county jails and you have the story of many combat vets.

    Superbly written first hand This opened my eyes to what veterans have to deal with on their return. The totally lack of support for these guys and gals is appalling. At least they can help themselves. Well written.

    The single most important book you should read. I just finished On Assimilation: A Ranger's Return from War. Every person, every Veteran, every civilian should set down the book they are currently reading and pick this one up. It's not very long and you will barely miss the time spent away from your current book. What IT WILL DO is change your life. If you are a Veteran, this book will help you in ways you could not imagine. It will be a starting point for your healing. Leo has laid it all out the The single most important book you should read. I just finished On Assimilation: A Ranger's Return from War. Every person, every Veteran, every civilian should set down the book they are currently reading and pick this one up. It's not very long and you will barely miss the time spent away from your current book. What IT WILL DO is change your life. If you are a Veteran, this book will help you in ways you could not imagine. It will be a starting point for your healing. Leo has laid it all out there. I thank him for that. If you've ever thought or spoken the words, "I Support Our Troops/Veterans" then you need to read this book. Chances are you have done more of a disservice to them than supporting them. You need to know what it's really like to be a Veteran and know what Veteran's are going through. From the failed VA to the fake help being offered by our government, the book shows an insight into the problems our Veteran's are going through. Unfortunately, the reality is, those problems may initiate with you. The person who will shake a Veteran's hand and thank them for their service but won't even consider them for employment. Just one example of many. Don't set down your current book... drop it, throw it! Grab this one and read it as fast as you can. Our brothers/sisters need your help. They fought for you and now it's time for our country to fight for them. Any veteran who needs to talk, message me. I am here for you. No matter what! RLTW!

    Amazing For years I've been struggling with finding ways to cope with coming home from Afghanistan and your words hit me right in the chest. Simply a great read. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story. I pray our paths cross someday in the future. Until then, I'm here for you brother and anyone who needs someone to listen.

    How very normal to me, not my civilian friends Great job Ranger. It seemed like I lived all of it along side of you, and a way I guess I did. We all do I our own ways. thank you for putting it out there and letting us all realize that we are normal.... Ish. In our veteran way.

    For me this was closer to a 3.5. I was hoping for a little more insight. I already know allot of the struggles veterans face because my husband is one. However, I certainly appreciate Leo putting himself out for all the world to read. Everything helps.
