About the Author 

Greg Gorecki traded in his role as a combat soldier in Afghanistan for a one-man campaign to help first responders suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other mental-health injuries.

Gorecki has published a book of stunning photographs taken during a six-month tour of Afghanistan serving with the Edmonton-based 1 Combat Engineer Regiment, with each glossy photo (measuring about 13 inches by 11 inches) accompanied by a story.

All proceeds from the sale of the book will help first responders with PTSD or mental health injuries and help spread awareness about the issue of mental health.
