About D.A. Michaels

U.S. Navy Veteran, Law Enforcement Officer, Mother, Proud Patriot and PTSD Survivor.

Everyone has a story to tell and scars that don’t heal. This is the story of a young, idealistic teen who leaves a small town and abusive father to join the Navy in a refreshingly down to earth memoir of one woman’s journey of self-discovery. She embraces life with passion and courage, from training and partying with Navy SEALs to skydiving and joining the police force, but when tragic events while serving her country lead to years of nightmares, depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, she must learn to navigate life through the heartache and tears until the laughter and love return.
