A Veteran Speaks by Hartley Barnes
Between the covers are stories depicting the challenges of veterans during wartime. The mental transformation they return home with and the agony to find their way to normalcy. We say to the veteran (s) thank you for your service and not understanding how their lives have changed. They cry in silence as the family watches. Spouses cry aloud as husbands and wives decay. Children ask questions and the answers are not satisfying, and they ask more questions.
I, the author, a veteran, am still facing the challenges of war. The peace I seek, can it be found—can any veteran find it?
