    At some point every solider wrote a check to their country, this cheque could be cashed at any time. Day or night, whether they had left families behind, or their family was the military. This check was for anything, their sanity, their limbs, their memories, nights of restful...

    I think that's very sad.

    I'm gonna research why this happens. War is no joke and I think it's sad that someone who's already been through so much should have to face a whole other battle with homelessness.
