War Nostalgia Is Leading Veterans to Places Like Syria. One Went Missing There. – The Daily Beast.

This is a very well written and eye opening article–j

There isn’t a day goes by i don’t wish to be back in the heat, wearing kit, and praying someone would give us a reason, or something would explode, somewhere, anywhere. I miss combat and combat zones i miss the freedom and the clear sense of purpose. As I check myself weekly back into why i don’t go anymore, it helps to know there are others who feel the same, and maybe we need a support group, or a chatroom or our own space in the VFW?  I miss it and i miss those friends, but today, reading about someone else and their desire to return, or having made it back, is enough.–j
