My father is a retired Navy Seal Officer. We were stationed on the San Diego base. He earned three gold stars and more silver stars than I can count. He had an early retirement due to physiological damage. I was young, but still remember the horrible experience after his last tour. This all traumatized me for sure:
When I got older, I vowed to never marry an officer of any military branch.
My prayers go out to all the men and women who are forced, or are under legal obligation, to participate in this war.
