Its true, you really don't know what they have gone through just by looking at them. This is lost on many people.
It is especially challenging for those who have never been close to it to stop for a moment and try to empithize/understand what they are experiencing and why they are behaving/speaking they way they do.
The disconnect is not even always from others outside of the service but also as time goes by, I feel there is a generational disconnect and people forget the past. Shall we never forget history and the men to helped to preserve the American way of life.
