Milford author Elliott Storm will have book signings at ShopRite grocery stores in Milford and West Haven this weekend.

Storm wrote his novel to help the public and service family members to understand the causes and effects of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, and to help in the healing process for returning veterans.
The novel is currently a top seller and has been given five-stars on Amazon. It has become a "must read" for health care professionals and others who are charged with helping a new generations of soldiers and civilians, organizers said in a statement.
Storm and his group "The Vet Pack" has lectured across the country, speaking to many organizations, from veteran groups in California to the University of Michigan, West Point Academy and The Naval War College.
Milford Maryor James L. Richetelli Jr., shown in photo with Storm, has said "This book serves to remind people that regardless of how they feel about the war, they need to support the men and women who are there to defend our freedom."
"Elliott Storm is a credit to the Milford community," Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has said, according to the statement. "This is a book everyone should read."
"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has become an epidemic," Storm said, "not only for our returning soldiers but civilians as well. The goal of our lectures and this novel is to provide an understanding of PTSD and through that aid in the healing process,"
