From Prosperity To Adversity

Regular price $ 12.99 $ 0.00

Inspired to enter the U.S. military by his father, an army veteran, Curtis Sangster got in top-notch shape and joined the United States Marines. He assumed that he was physically and mentally prepared to serve his country and to face any battle, But to his surprise, in January 1991, during Operation Eastern Exit, the codename given to the military evacuation of the United States Embassy in Mogadishu, the capital city of Somalia, he realized, although he was physically prepared, he wasn't mentally prepared. His emotions were in overdrive. He missed his family, his girlfriend, and his home.

Curtis chronicles, with admirable candor, his astonishing life story that involves a troubled childhood, drug addiction, compulsive sexual behavior, a dishonorable discharge, and a prison term. He tells the reader how overcoming psychological trauma changed his life for the better.
