"I don't mean to call the kid out. But it is unlikely. The two branches are actually separate. By that I mean if you are an active duty guy, its active duty and if you are reservist then you are a reservist. You can not bounce between the…"

""I am crazy hyper vigilant, over-aggressive, and very angry." This. From my own observations this is really what PTSD is. It's the inability to "unwind" after living for a year in a combat zone. A lot of guys use alcohol as…"

"thats not new..... dehumanization and demonification have been part of the psychology of war since its outset. By making the enemy less like yourself it is easier to live with the horrors of war."
