A recent article on whether America's all-volunteer military is desensitizing us to war might be right for some. I don't really dispute most of it.
In my case, I am still dealing with the traumas created by service in Vietnam. I'm a Marine veteran who served in that long forgotten war from 1968-69.
I don't think it will ever leave me, but I am learning to make an uneasy peace with it. I have friends who served in both Gulf wars as well as Afghanistan. I can only imagine their daily horrors as I must deal with mine.
