Genny Krackau, author of Beyond The Explosion, is a life resident of San Antonio, Texas.  She spent the majority of her Civil Service career working in the U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and then retired from the U.S. Army Medical Command, at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

After her retirement, she worked several government contract jobs within the AMEDD.  Of special interest was a research study with wounded warriors for combat related injuries.  Additional research included military and civilian burn injuries, supporting a clinical trial for head injury patients and hearing conservation research with the Department of Defense Hearing Center of Excellence.

Her sincere dedication and compassion for the patient is well established by her numerous accomplishments and awards. She always put the patient first and foremost in any job she performed.  It's no surprise that by compiling these Combat Near Death Experience stories, she once again is serving the military in a very unique and special way.
