Alcohol killed my father

in 1984;

But to those he knew

in 42,

what killed him

was that war.

  1. PTSD never completely goes away. Most often perceived remedies: alcohol and/or drugs. But of course, those aren't remedies, just more problems. There's a lot more help available now than there was for our fathers and grandfathers, we just have to ask.

  2. I had a cousin who served in 'Nam. He got caught in that Agent Orange thing. He didn't have and drug or alcohol problems, but a lot of behavioral problems. Nice guy, died in his late 40's.Life is tough enough without being sent thousands of miles away to fight an enemy we shouldn't.

  3. Sounds like you had a tough childhood. I feel bad for you.
