Well, as usual, we are doing a shitty job.
I am the daughter of a Korean War veteran, who self-medicated with alcohol and kept us in an uproar of midnight movings to escape bill collectors. I am the wife of a Viet Nam veteran who does not drink, but practiced retail therapy and avoided his marriage and family for most of the last three decades.
I’ve fought depression and suicidal impulses since age ten. And how many veterans are there coming back impacted by the most recent pair of wars?
