Neither have I, but I know many who have. Everyone who has is a different person when they got back. It used to be call shell shock, now the call it
PTSD. Some of our soldiers are deployed for a year or more, the stress involved can cause a sane person to crack.
Yes he enlisted but to expect anyone to go through such long deployments with no clear objective where one faces an invisible 'enemy' that takes
sniper shots, plants bombs for convoys, launches RPG attacks against bases, ect is a situation that no one should have to be exposed to for such
prolonged periods of time.
