The family has a hard time at first with their son not being able to do many things. In “The Sniper” the war that is faced is when the man/soldier goes to war and he and his enemy are fighting for their lives.

Veterans and our soldiers are coming home from war or getting out of the military and when they get home they can’t afford rent or they have a mental disease from war. Homeless veterans tend to experience homelessness longer than non-veteran homeless. This should not be happening to our soldiers. This is very undesirable for our troops to come home and becoming homeless. They fight for our freedom and our rights and we repay them by becoming homeless.
Whenever war takes place, people are likely to migrate to another place. As a result, the so called “home” no longer exists because of the idea of moving to another place for survival.

The soldiers also grow close together and treat each other like family during their service which, consequently, makes it hard to leave them. Veterans feel isolated when they return home because their friends and family have not experienced combat like they had. One veteran who was interviewed claimed that “I can tell stories all night long and [my family] probably won’t really grasp what’s going on”(Ahern pg.5). Most veterans feel that no one can truly understand what they went through in war without being in war. Nevertheless, they feel disconnected from their friends and family.
I have concluded it isn’t because of the horrible effects of post war. Many Vietnam veterans had to deal with it if not still deal with it. War can also bring sadness to the family members of a soldier that past away. We already know from The Forever War that it can dehumanize you to where nothing really bothers you anymore and you really don’t care in more. We have also learned of the hard ships that Vietnam Veterans felt with, and know how most of them couldn’t even find job’s.

In the “Children on the battlefield” article written by Marcie Schwartz explains that boys under 18 have served in many wars including the Civil War. They would join by lying about there age, having their parents sign them up, or there teachers would influence the recruiting officer to let them join.

They were afraid that they would lose them or never hear from them again. With this fear and the addition of the draft that caused families to be split up. The draft also made it to where the men were being forced to serve even if they did not want to. There was a loss of younger children and older family members from the war and there was a hard time trying to communicate with one another. The lack of communication added an extra burden because there was no instant response.
When ask Mr. Byrnes about his employment history he replied that he was in the Army from 2002 to 2006 and was honorable discharge.

A veteran is someone who has served a long time in the military, no matter what their age. Veterans are important to our freedom because while serving their time, you have to remember that they are fighting for your right to be free in the United States. Without them, there wouldn’t be any freedom in this world. They fight for what they believe in and what is right for the country. You have to remember, these war vets are putting their lives on the line for people they don’t even know.
Veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF) have high rates of unemployment and mental health disorders. In addition, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common injury among OIF/OEF veterans, often leading to cognitive impairments and post-concussive symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and difficulties with cognitive and functioning. TBI and comorbid psychiatric conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) limit cognitive readiness for civilian employment and may lead to impaired job performance. These conditions all serve as potential barriers for OIF/OEF Veterans entering the workforce.
