#1 I hope they can make it happen for him. But really, like everything else one has to fill out the form and turn it in.

#4 This nation in the past has always kept the battlefields at arms length so that the ones the soldiers loved and were protecting would not experience the horrors of the battlefield.

The above video from the TV series The Pacific was right on when capturing the return of soldiers to a sheltered society. The soldiers of WWII had only one thing to learn, to be the best killing machines in the world, nothing more and nothing less. Like Sledge said, they got pretty dam good at it. It was so obvious to them how disconnected the US civilians back home were from an understanding of living hell.

And to them that was mission accomplished...
