'War changes people': How families cope; why you should care.

'War changes people': How families cope; 
why you should care.

This is a great article about 
soldiers returning home.
Plus, it includes resources for help
with issues the soldier and their family
may be experiencing.

Here's just a bit:

Coming home 
We’ve seen the news stories: A soldier returns from Iraq or Afghanistan. He surprises his son at school, or his wife at work. Joy ensues. Everyone is deliriously happy and seems to disappear into some gentle, glowing sunset, destined to live blissfully ever after.
Reality is much more complicated. Coming back home — it’s called reintegration — can be grim. “I don’t think many people understand that the welcome home is never the end of the story, but rather a new beginning of a different battle,” says Seligman.
Vets often undergo war experiences they can’t — or won’t — share with their spouse, says Schindler. “They want to forget. They don’t want to go to a psychologist; there’s a stigma attached to that. Maybe they jump at every loud noise. And maybe they fall into drug and alcohol abuse.”

I can't tell you how many families I know
who are dealing with the 'reintegration' 
MONTHS after the Welcome Home ceremony.
