Re: Have you thanked a Veteran today?
I will tell him for you, maxib and LTL. Thanks! I honestly don't know how he copes with day-to-day life. It's one thing to be so decorated. It's another to lead as normal of a life as possible after witnessing all of the terror that he has seen and participated in. He was a corpsman on the front lines in Vietnam. When my sister and I were little, it wasn't uncommon for our bedtime stories to include something like "then we went into the village and had to kill all of the women and children because they all had weapons and wanted to kill us." How do you cope with life after that? No wonder so many veterans are crazy.
