Veteran's Chapter

War is a different kind of vacation. It's a vacation from your life, but it's memories will always be with you.

The young boys that go to war, quickly become men. Some of them retain their boyish demeanor, but inside their hearts have been frozen by what they've seen. Most of them don't have ideas about who they want to become before they go to war, but they all have one thing in common...they all want to come back alive.

I don't understand why there are so many homeless Vets? Wasn't that one of the great promises of the government? They were supposed to train the soldiers and teach them amazing skills plus they would see the world! I think whoever wrote their travel brochures were the boy geniuses of Madison Avenue.
