5/28/23 – Patrick Smithwick
Patrick Smithwick is a husband, dad, teacher, and author. His newest book – “War’s Over, Come Home–A Father’s Search for His Son, Two-Tour Marine Veteran of the Iraq War”, has just been released on hardcover. As we’ll find in this interview, Patrick takes his role as ‘Dad’ to heart. And in the case of his family’s years of searching for his son Andrew, every waking moment. In this story I hope we’ll think about honoring all our veterans this Memorial Day weekend, but also gain an awareness of the trauma so many, too many live with when they return from war.
