A Soldiers Tale

War has many casualties. Front line soldiers may not be wounded physically but combat leaves emotional scars. To be an effective soldier, you must ‘think’ and ‘react’ not emotionally respond or you become a liability. Returning to civilian life is difficult and soldiers often have guilt, anger, shame, and fears to deal with. Relationships are hard to start or maintain when you are emotionally shut down. Mental health needs to be a priority.
