Former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander almost ran for president, but instead took time to deal with his PTSD from his military service. His latest book, “Invisible Storm: A Soldier’s Memoir of Politics and PTSD” tells that story in honest detail.

“More than anything, it was about writing the book that I wish had been available to me over a decade ago, because I went a lot of years, much like a lot of other veterans and a lot of other people with trauma, believing that PTSD was a terminal diagnosis from a career perspective and possibly from a life perspective,” Kander told Missourinet.

Ashley Byrd interviewed Kander about the book and began by asking him to read from the prologue.
