Boise Author Writes Military Drama Based On His Own Experiences

Jan 28, 2019

Following his service in the military, Andrew Coussens went to work as a private military contractor in Afghanistan, Iraq and various classified locations. He found the work created incredible strains on his family, and while he assumed the risk of an active military member, he wasn't privy to the benefits afforded to military veterans. Coussens parlayed his experience into the novel, "A Failed State." He joins Idaho Matters to talk about his book and the challenges faced by private military contractors after they come home.
