Not Quite Home: A Soldier’s Search for Belonging

James B. Morgan joins us with his new memoir

unaware-cover-340wThere is a brotherhood, formed in the crucible of battle, which brooks no other path to membership. Created in the incapacitating fear of incoming fire that no training can ever simulate, those fraternal bonds are stronger than the blood that is shed to form them.

James B. Morgan spent twenty-four years in service to his country and his memoir examines being a soldier in a way that goes beyond life on the battlefield and peers into the souls of combat brotherhood. Morgan studies the mind of his soldiers using his own experiences as the thread that ties the narrative together. From feeling obligated to volunteer for deployment, to wondering about the families mourning the losses he caused, Morgan speaks plainly about why so many soldiers struggle to belong.
