It is something that cannot be explained or even understood until you’ve lived it; a man can’t know or fully appreciate his life until he’s been close enough to taste the end of it, and the bonds forged in battle are some of the strongest a man could ever have.

I knew that these people on their way to work or home or dinner had no idea what it was they were supporting. They did not have a clue as to what war was like. What it made people see, and what it made them do to each other. I felt as though I didn’t deserve their support, or anyone’s, for what I had done. No one should ever support the activities in which I had participated. No one should ever support the people who do such things. (…) They were uninformed but good people. The kind whose respect we would welcome if it was based upon something true. It was when we were around them that we had to hide the actual truth most consciously. It wasn’t enough to not mention the war or being a veteran, because they’d bring it up. The civilians we were most anxious around, and therefore tended the most to avoid, were exactly those good citizens who thought they were helping us. – Jessica Goodell

The truth is this: We begin and end alone. – Matthew J. Hefti

‎It’s not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what is required. – Winston Churchill

You never get used to it. You just get through it. – Army Wives

I feel like so much has been left undone. There are friends I won’t see before I leave, there are bills I still need to pay. I haven’t written as much as I’ve wanted, and there are countless things I’ve said that I wish I could correct, but this is a process that will never end.
