Judyth Piazza interviews Attorney Phil Davidson, Author of 'Dreamer'
Attorney Phil Davidson, Author, Vietnam Veteran, PTSD and SWAT Law Enforcement Expert
Vietnam Veteran Phil Davidson`s life reads like a spy novel, full of intrigue, mystery, combat and even a happy ending.
Awarded the Bronze Star, Combat Infantry Badge and Vietnamese Jump Wings, his years in the military have been followed by working in law enforcement and becoming an expert in hostage negotiations and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Phil Davidson is also the author of the SWAT Tactical Training manual which has been used to train police across the country. He also worked with President Reagan`s Veteran Affairs Council and received a Ph.D in College Administration before becoming an attorney practicing Civil Rights litigation. Dreamer, his based-on-reality military thriller novel, is historical fiction at its best.
The book opens dialogue on controversial topics such as the reality of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as an illness, marriage and relationship issues caused by the nightmares often associated with PTSD, delves into private areas most veterans want kept secret, and introduces the opening up process through which true restoration can begin.
Phil Davidson`s book Dreamer is dedicated to preserving the bond of brotherhood that military members commit to, shows the power of faith in overcoming life`s most adverse situations, shows the strength of families working through challenges, and the healing from trauma that occurs by becoming bold enough to face the enemies of your past.
The fiery relationship between Dreamer`s main character and his lover adds yet another twist to this spectacular drama.
