Until Tuesday : A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him
A heartwarming dog story like no other: Tuesday, a lovable golden retriever, changes a former soldier's life forever.
A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalván never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover.
Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being--until Luis.
Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how, together, they healed each other's souls.

Posted December 22, 2011 by Abby , Vancouver, BCI will pass on a review as my fellow reviewers did a fine job of telling the Luis's story! My only comment was that I was totally blown over how much discrimination there is for the handicap! (What does he need do.... walk around in his dress uniform all the time, with all his beautiful medals stamped to his chest before getting any respect or recognition for being a war vet?!? Vietnam...hello???) Here a man served in the war...not once, but twice....and came home to no support to look after his wounds! I can't believe the "higher up's" did not think of the conquences once they went to war what would happen to the men and women who came home, broken! Well the next generation is going to be in a shock when you have all these warriors come home and have to deal with the wounds you can see....and for those hidden wounds like PSTD. As for Luis and Tuesday....I fell in love with you two. The bond you share is special, unique and heartwarming! I hope you find the peace that you crave for! Don't give up on humanity....not all are morons like the ones you have described! I highly recommend this book. It definately opened my eyes to PSTD and the debilitating conquences of having this terrible, terrible disability!
