This thesis is a short novel drawing on science-fiction, military-fiction, and realistic-fiction genres to explore the difficulties faced by deployed soldiers and those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The themes and difficulties contained within the narrative were generated by my personal relations and experiences with combat veterans, as well as research conducted through published academic works and communication with a neuroscience researcher. While the aim of this text is to further existing dialogues between veterans, active duty military, and civilians, it is also meant to be an enjoyable read for those interested in the genres mentioned above.
