In uncertain times, it' s a comfort to have men and women standing beside you that you trust and they trust you. So what has changed? You're a civilian now, and the feeling of isolation and the uneasy sense of no mission or even despair seems to affect every aspect of your life. The partner you walk or rode a beat with, the men in your squad or company. It seems as if it was in another world so long ago and so far away. You are not alone. The world has changed and you have changed too. Try as you may, you can't go back in time to those days that your memory has told you were the "good old days". The wet and cold marches in the mud, the sleepless nights on watch and yes the fear that you may miss something and your buddies would pay for your mistake. The battle to keep your eyes open and not fall asleep as you dream of eating a hot meal at home. Yes, those are the "good old days that some how still haunt you. Remember the day you got off the plane and stepped on to American soil and literally kissed the ground? Well, those are the good old days too.
