The Warrior’s Guide to Insanity: According to the Walo Chronicles (Book Three)

WGI: Walo cover frontIntroduction

An historical narrative, The Walo Chronicles is based on over 130 years of collective experience by two blooded Combat Warriors. The two scribes in this accounting of the struggles and successes of our Warriors, are Command Sgt. Major Billie Russell, Combat Medic, United States Army retired, and Sgt. Andrew Brandi, 0311 “Grunt”, United States Marine Corps.

Collectively they have logged in over 90 years of dealing with Combat Stress – PTSD. They have pondered the tragic impact of war, how it affects our new generation of Warriors, their influence on this nation, and how their pain may be transformed into hope for the future.
WGI: Walo cover back
Meeting every week for nearly 7 years they have looked into their hearts and souls, into the darkness and the light to uncover the truth of who we all are – peeling back layer by layer of social and personal denial, to uncover the naked reality of what it is to be a human being.

After a tour in South Korea and four tours at Letterman Hospital, in San Francisco, during and after the Vietnam TET offensive, in 1968, CSM Russell’s life changed forever. Holding dismembered soldiers in her arms as they pleaded for help, for love, for understanding, as death pulled them from their anguish, her soul was deeply wounded and her heart broken forever.

Unknown to each of them, at this exact time, Sgt. Brandi, was being baptized in the blood of battle, in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam. Russell’s job as a medic was to save lives. Brandi’s job as a Marine was to take life. One day many years later their paths would cross. They would join together on a mission that neither expected in their youth, a mission to help their Brother and Sister Warriors.

With CSM Russell, being Native American, of the Lakota Sioux Tribe, the influence of the Nations was inevitable in the Walo Chronicles – Walo meaning, Warrior Love, a term she created for this new generation of Warriors, for the new era unfolding.

Come with us now, on this Journey to Becoming. Bravely step across the threshold of true understanding, and embrace the Knowing. Glimpse who we all are, and bathe in the Golden Light of Truth and Wisdom. This work is for you. It IS for ALL of us.


This book is dedicated to my fellow Warriors and those who love them.

A Life Lived By Honor, is a Life Well Lived.
Live your Truth, be proud to be a Warrior, and act like it.

Know that even in the darkness,
you are Never alone.

Together we Serve.

Together we shall overcome.

For Surrender is Not in our Creed.

We ARE Warriors!
