About the Book
Snapshots of one soldier’s time overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq, Time Cap fearlessly lets readers peer inside the windows at both the light and dark sides of military service. Many passages are lifted straight from the author Nick Rucker’s journal, shedding light on his battle with alcoholism and his struggle to maintain relationships and readjust to a “normal” life upon returning to the States.
Relatable to soldiers and to any who’ve had their lives turned suddenly upside-down, Rucker offers a message of hope: you can turn your life back around, no matter how far you think you’ve fallen.
