Author Sebastian Junger signs book copies at NIM

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Famous Author Sebastian Junger was at the National Infantry Museum on Friday signing copies of his new book, "Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging."

Junger's others famous books include "The Perfect Storm" and "Restrepo."

His latest book poses questions about various topics including issues veterans face upon returning home from war.

The book also warns about the consequences if people did not put aside their differences and start banning together.

His says the book includes not just what soldiers go through, but for anyone who had a life-changing experience.

"I have had Army shrinks and Army privates tell me I am right on the money," Junger said. "That they feel like they just don't fit in. My book explains that is the problem because there is nothing to fit into."

Junger says the solution to these feelings of isolation and loneliness is being more community-minded and that divisive political talk is very destructive.
