Major Jones has recently published his first book "BRAIN PAIN." Brain Pain is a raw and honest account of what it means to serve in the military and make a sacrifice, which demands a lifelong price.  It is a book which is a ‘must read’ for anyone who wants to know what service and sacrifice really are, and is a striking picture of what life with a traumatic brain injury (Brain Pain) is like.  For while the physical scars may heal in time and leave no lasting effects, the mental scars are ever present and lie much deeper. You can get it on Amazon Books and Kindle Direct.
