Coming home from war can be rough, especially for Vietnam veterans.

West Virginia author John Brown's second book, "Augie's World," is dedicated to those who suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder and to families who provide support.

Brown's first book, "Augie's War," used his childhood memories growing up as part of an Italian family in Clarksburg and his time in Vietnam. "Augie's World" draws on some of his experiences after returning home from the Vietnam War.
