“The book is not really about the accident,” Dixon said. “It is about our experiences, what we learned and what we want to pass on to other people.”
The book is not intended to be a story of woe. Instead, theirs, including Dixon’s wife Kristen, is a story of hope.
“You can face some of these awful experiences and, with a little luck, you can come out on the other side,” Dixon said.
The accident was transformational for Dixon’s own life.
“Sometimes, you don’t know what good will come from these things,” he said.
In the aftermath, Dixon quit his job. Then he founded The Military Civilian Career Coaching Connection, helping military service men and women transition to civilian careers.
Proceeds from the book are intended to help Bobby meet expenses, but also to serve the needs of emergency responders and families in similar situations.
“We want to use some of it to help other families,” Dixon said. “We’ve been there, we know how difficult it is.”
