Being a hero comes with a price.
After watching the “Meet The Warriors” videos, it’s given me a renewed respect for our military men and women. It is an extreme sacrifice for people to serve in the U.S. military and when they return home, they cannot simply leave combat behind and pick up where they left off. The invisible wounds of war are something that makes returning to civilian life a whole different challenge. Men and women return home after having seen and experienced horrific things. These things stay with them and it takes time and compassion for healing.
A code of honor. No one gets left behind.
One thing that touched me most (especially Justin’s, Josh’s, & William’s story) was the fact that these men not only would give up their lives for us, but they are fiercely dedicated to each other. The trials that they go through during training and combat create a bond that none of us could understand unless we experienced it. It is a deep bond of trust and respect; a code of honor. No one gets left behind.
How can we help? Let’s not leave them behind.
