This particular group of combat veterans have real stories to tell, including how they were affected individually, the impact on family, and how they coped or did not cope initially.  One veteran speaks about how “killing” changes you because humans see killing as wrong.  It goes back to the moral compass and how the soul flees the body.  Another veteran speaks of his huge challenge with alcohol and the importance of taking the advice of mental health professionals and the “command” in seeking treatment and transition to a happy and healthy civilian life.  Continue to listen to more on the effects of war on marriage.  Please take the time to see and listen to this excellent CNN report.  Read my book, Reconciliation: A Son’s Story and connect the dots with my family’s struggle for 70 years.
