I think for a lot of people it is hard to explain war and even more so perhaps what it is like to come home from it. Neither Phil or I have spoke much about the year that followed his return from Iraq, but I think it surprised us both how challenging it was.
He was certainly a different person and while he healed fairly quickly he never did return to the same carefree, light-hearted boy he was before.
My husband did not suffer this kind of distress and for us, the major issues were dealt with pretty much in a year or two, but this Marine’s story is powerful.
Extremely well written. I honestly believe it is worth your time to read.
He has a blog.
