He went to 'Nam - decorated hero (highly decorated). Came back, went to law school, had a family, and fell apart. Died on the streets. Got the whole fancy funeral at Arlington, but it was too late for him. Very sad. And occurs more than people realize. From Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan, too.

I always tell folks that I was incredibly blessed to go through 21 years of military life and only have one shot fired at me in anger.
