Life with Lyme
Disease in the Military

the Back Cover...
After serving this country for over twenty years, my family is now holed up in a makeshift bunker smack in the middle of a long forgotten ghost town, and pinching pennies for groceries and medications. Why? The military illegally took our future away with the stroke of a pen, because of Lyme Disease. Did we complain? You bet. Did we provide documentation of their illegal actions? Affirmative. Did we find resolution? Not on your life.
This story is about the most difficult decision a soldier has to make—his career or his wife's life. It's about the courage of our family, who believes enough in truth, justice, and the American way, to confront the integrity of the United States Army in order to preserve those same values. We took a stand—one that has literally brought us to our knees. The military would prefer we remain in limbo, forever isolated from the tribe, where once we played by the rules, followed orders, and learned never ever to question protocol. We asked one question, but that was one too many. That one question sent us to
Purgatory, that nebulous in-between land of the dead and forgotten is where we live now. We have been waiting here; listed AWOL and stripped of everything we labored for. Still waiting for truth, justice, and the American way. Isn't this why we served?
Sue Vogan, courageous wife of an American soldier, gives a first-hand exposé of the military! Read about her husband's illegal job assignment, the military's nightmarish health care system, and other “hush-hush” occurrences she witnessed. In this heart-wrenching, true story, see how she contracts Lyme disease, then her husband Tim is sent to South Korea, only to be listed as AWOL when released on leave!

Learn about the true horror of living with Lyme disease. Help Sue fight for the fair treatment she deserves from the military. A must-read for all educated citizens of America.

"Sue Vogan is a remarkable writer. Once I met her, I realized that she was the one who could best write my biography, Mumsa, which she is currently working on. She has such a way with words that you can actually "see and feel" what she is writing about. The story of NCO has been long in coming."
