Hello, This is about WAR!
The human and personal side of WAR. the personal toll, the personal effect. Am I anti-war? not necessarily, but we as a society must consider the effects, all of the effects. Yes the destruction, monetary cost, the human life lost and then THE LIVING. The ones left over, of which I am one.
In WAR, the combatants are thrust into unpredictable circumstances at inopportune times. The results are the worst violence that humanity can inflict on humanity!
If one lives through a combat action, we are forever different. We know it and whether you admit it or not, you know it too. I over heard someone say of a 'soldier' come home, "it is something in his eyes."
This brings me to my point; Our civilian population doesn't know what to do with us, the 'citizen soldier', the military veteran. Society is divided, some feel the military training is good training for ones self motivation. Others feel all the veteran is trained for is violence.
The truth is we feel just like you, We want to be just like we were before we left home (but we are not), We feel our training makes us responsible self motivated citizens (yet we have seen and experienced what few others ever will).
