Our own veterans from the Vietnam war can still be seen, ill, sleeping and begging on the streets of NYC, albeit Refugees in their own country. Why is this?
*Go to 'Denial and the Real Cost of the War' by Sylvia from over the Hill for current views and heartbreaking effects of war on our soldiers.
**A good read on the aftermath of war, particularly 1918, is Pat Barker's REGENERATION - War and Peace, of Mind. An important, novel of destruction and rebuilding of the human mind from the point of view of a pshycotherapist and the patient.
*** And not forgetting Virginia Woolf's take on the war in Mrs. Dalloway.
