At the young age of 17, James Curry hoped to escape a hostile home by enlisting in the Marines, and ended up right in the middle of the terrible War in Iraq.
James survived his tour of duty by hiding being gay under the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, but then after returning to civilian life, lost his first boyfriend and ended up homeless.
Despite these setbacks, James was determined to make something of his life and after securing a great job as a news producer he was dealt the hardest blow of all: a medical diagnosis of cancer.
Today, Peabody award winning journalist and writer James Curry joins us to talk about his new book Staying Alive: Surviving Abuse, Fighting a War and Beating Cancer- My First Twenty-Five Years which chronicles his abusive family, military service, forbidden lost love and the challenges of coming home to fight for your life.
