The Casualties of Divorce offers a front row seat to the turmoil endured by all when two adults decide to end their marriage, for whatever reason. The book explores the different perspectives and experiences as told by dozens of persons who have proverbially “walked the walk” amongst different degrees of separation. It is intended to provide the reader with the understanding that they are not alone, their feelings are valid and that “This Too Shall Pass”. Co-authored by three casualties of divorce, this book will enlighten those who are contemplating divorce and comfort those who have survived one.

View the author, Vincent Casale, who wrote this book with input from Jayson Cole and Thomas J. Billotti, Ph.D. Their  perspective is an important and different take on “The Casualties of Divorce”.

On February 8, 2006, Frank Vetro, the young, popular principal of a school in eastern Long Island, saw his life dramatically altered. On that day, he was arrested and effectively labeled a terrorist who had hidden under the guise of a New York educator. In Standing on Principal, he shares his personal story, detailing his arrest, his nights in jail, the court proceedings, and the subsequent fight to clear his name after the alleged scandal was nurtured into the national limelight. Now he recounts the injustice, and the lack of integrity of individuals who allowed the destruction of his life without a moment’s concern for fairness or truth. Telling a real-life story of deception and scandal, Standing on Principal exposes rogue elements of a system that underestimated the tenacious character of its accused and shows how Vetro sacrificed everything as he refused to be intimidated by a political machine.

Listen to Frank’s gripping account of survival.
