    I wonder what the figure was for those serving in World War II.

    This is no real surprise. Frankly I'm a little surprised it's not worse.

    Waging war is a tough demanding endeavor. Those faught amongst a civilian population where your enemy is hard to identify are particularly hard on one's psyche.

    I pray for them all.

    Serving your country has always come with a high price tag. Its another reason why we should take care of our service men and women.

    Anyone that sees sights on a battlefield is going to have to deal with it somehow. People deal with this stuff in different ways. I am not sure that there is a one size fits all answer for how to deal with this.

    My suggestion is that ex veterens should attempt to belong to a group of ex veterens. In Australia it is called the RSL, Returned Services League. You give your life for your comrades in battle, sometimes it is those same comrades that can help you out when you are struggling back home.
