Delmarva Today 11-13-20 The Veteran & The Eagle (Part 2)

Book Cover

Birds of prey can often bring solace to those with PTSD -- especially U.S. military personnel who recently have endured numerous tours in war zones abroad. Delmarva Today host Don Rush talked with Dava Guerin who has coauthored with Terry Bivens a new book entitled, "The Eagle on My Arm: How the Wilderness and Birds of Prey Saved a Veteran's Life." It details the journey of one Vietnam veteran who found comfort and stability from those birds.

Don Rush is the News Director at Delmarva Public Media. An award-winning journalist, Don reports major local issues of the day, from sea level rise, to urban development, to the changing demographics of Delmarva.
