"My son was a combat medic in Afghanistan, on our way home from the airport after his welcome home celebration he was in the front seat of the car while I was driving. He was very nervous about cars getting to close to us. Then on the Fourth of July I noticed he was missing from our family cook out and I found him sitting nervously in a dark room because he couldn't handle the fire works. My son is a very well educated man, very strong and determined ,it took a few years to get grounded again but he is doing very well with his life now. New house, new wife (the old one cheated on him while he was deployed) and a very good job but he's not the happy go lucky kid that we watched leave for war" (Source).
