The Vietnam war ended when I was still a baby, but I have known numerous people that were in it. My mom had a boyfriend who was really weird about his experiences. He was the type that always talked about the stuff he saw and did, but would never go into details. I can understand wanting to forget the atrocities over there, so why bring it up at all? It seemed as if he was reliving his glory days and his horror all at the same time. He unfortunately died at 41, over 20 years ago, but it would be morbidly interesting to see what would have happened if he was alive today. Have you been in the war? Have you known soldiers that came home and people say they weren't the same? Did they talk about their experiences?
