Great post Dave. Thanks

 

Edited to add; I had a cousin there on Omaha. Most decorated man of WWII in Kentucky. He had 9 purple hearts. Claude Jack Reed was his name. I spoke at his funeral a few years ago. His wife told me he never had a good nights sleep, after he came home, unless he was medicated which he refused. He would sleep a couple hours, get up, and listen to the radio, and drink coffee. He was a good man. 

I worked at the Post Office and a co worker, whos husband worked at the local VA Hosp, and for all intents and purposes was a draft dodger hiding in college rather than getting drafted, said all those patients were just drug attics and drunkards.  

It infuriated me. I turned around and told her she had no Idea what she was talking about. I told her she couldn't imagine the things some of these men seen, and done to mankind, and as a result the daemons floating in some of these men's heads as a result.  I told her not to judge them too harshly.
