Shane Mutlow is a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, where he spent time at 1 CDHSR as a radio operator, and at 3 RCR, where he served with a parachute company. Shane has been to many different countries while serving in the military. He was deployed on an UN tour, UNAMIR, in Rwanda, Africa, from 1994–1995, and witnessed the aftermath of the genocide caused by the civil war between the Hutu and Tutsi clans. He has had a successful career working at an engineering firm prior to his retirement in 2014. His story is twenty years in the making and is one that needs to be told. This is Shane's first book, but it will surely give the readers an insight into the horrors and setbacks that our Canadian soldiers and veterans struggle with when they arrive home after being in a theatre of operation. Shane continues to reside in Pembroke, ON, with his wife Justine and daughter Madison. His two boys, Nicolas and his daughter Addison, Zachary and his fiancée Avery live out west and frequently come to Pembroke for visits.
Mental Illness impacts so many people today. Our soldiers are one of those groups which are deeply affected by this when they return home from deployment. It's our responsibility to make sure we look after them for their sacrifices.
