Starved for Bullets: A Collection of Scars

Llumina Press

Ryan Goodrich, retired U.S. Marine, takes readers to the darkest corners of modern warfare, asking us to look at cultural differences, religion, and the shaky hand that is American politics through unflinching eyes as reality spews from the pages. Interwoven with inflexible truths and unsettling brutality, these poems will resonate long after the final bullet is spent. This collection of scars recounts the struggles military members endure when death stares them in the face. It's about understanding what our nation was built upon and how we've gone astray. It's about remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It's about dealing with loss and differences. It may shock and place a bitter taste in your mouth at times, but the goal is to open eyes and make a statement so that future generations can benefit from our mistakes and victories in the best possible way. It's about you and I and everyone in-between. It's the journey we all endure and it should never be squandered or forgotten.

About the author

Ryan Goodrich is a medically retired U.S. Marine who lives a quiet life with his wife, son, and two dogs in Oregon. He is currently a successful Information Technology Manager, which reflects his many years as an Aviation Communications Technician while serving in the Marine Corps. Ryan holds a B.A. in English and a fire for the written word.  His experiences in the military have taken him to more than twenty different countries around the world, where he has seen the best and worst of everything that makes us human. The good and bad have both shaped his harsh and passionate style, but the memories are more vivid than words will ever be able to express. It is his hope that fellow veterans and civilians alike will be able to understand and embrace what it means to serve one’s country and appreciate all that is so easily lost or forgotten.
