The mother of a Fort Carson soldier is gaining national attention for her new book. The book is called, The Warrior: A Mother's Story of a Son at War. It is filled with poems and her thoughts as her son served our country.

Author Frances Richey was in Colorado Springs Wednesday to share her story. Her son, Ben Richey is a 1998 graduate of West Point and has served two tours in Iraq.

"It was so terrifying being his mom, seeing him enter this world that I knew was going to be so danger. Writing was an outlet for me. It was a way to express how I was feeling," said Author Frances Richey.
