How do combat veterans and their loved ones bridge the divide that war, by its very nature, creates between them? Diaz recounts the emotional rollercoaster her family and other soldiers' families experience during and after deployment.
Sgt. Roman Diaz served with the Bravo Company platoon from the 101st Airborne's 502nd Infantry Regiment, known as the "Black Heart Brigade."
August 17, 2010 Writer Sue Diaz was surprised when her son Roman told her that he was joining the Army. She writes about the emotional roller coaster her family experienced when her son left for war — and how her relationship with Roman changed — in Minefields of the Heart.
