Mathew Bocian served as a Captain in the United States Army with the Stryker Brigade and was deployed to Mosul and Tal’Afar in 2004 – 2005, and to Baghdad for The Surge in 2007 – 2008. He left the Army in 2012 and now uses his writings and poetry as a way to heal from the traumas of war, while also attempting to express to readers the often harsh realities of war. He is the recipient of the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, and holds a master’s from the Graduate School for Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh.
