AA in the Military is a collection of stories, previously published in Grapevine, by members of Alcoholics Anonymous who have served in the military. The book begins with letters from the troops during World War II, when Grapevine first became a vital tool in keeping soldiers sober and connected to AA. The chapters that follow are filled with stories of experience, strength and hope—by both men and women—who served their country on land, sea and air. These personal accounts illustrate the challenges alcoholics in uniform encounter, often under difficult circumstances, far from loved ones.
The book concludes with a powerful selection of stories by our sober veteran members, titled “Coming Home.”
