Qualls was fragile especially after being brainwashed to kill innocent prisoners. Qualls feels that no one can relate to him or understand what he’s going through, so he kills himself. March writes(pg.223) “I put the barrel in my mouth and pulled the trigger twice”.So due to the illness of war he ends it all he kills himself and this is what war caused him to do. He couldn’t take the pressure of his child being sick. According to Elsevier Ltd, “By contrast, many and by some accounts most veterans experience high levels of stress during the transition to civilian life.” Elsevier Ltd,“Transition stress is multifaceted and can lead to serious mental health problems.” In other words transitioning into the war can be a huge mental disorder on a soldier just as leaving the war can be.
The mens first kill was always the hardest for them, mentally they had so many thoughts of the other mans close ones back home and what they would go through and how it would be all their fault. Men went through so many tasks during the Vietnam War physically and mentally. The beginning chapters focus on training for war and being prepared for the worst. For example, when there is a sergeant in a room with the marines. The sergeant walks to the chalk board and writes “AMBUSHES ARE MURDER AND MURDER IS FUN” (36-37).

Unfortunately, the ones suffering are not just the people at war, it is also their families.

This is important because Concussions can sometimes result in long-term injuries. This is a problem because you don’t want to live life in pain from one blow to the head. As said by Weill Cornell long-term concussion injuries may cause “Moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) which can cause symptoms similar to a concussion, but people with these TBIs often experience more severe problems with attention and short-term memory, have difficulty
Orlick’s constant animosity and hunger for revenge has only filled him up with negative emotions for several years, making him unhappy and unable to enjoy life. Pip was also injured in the process demonstrating how revenge harms the victim and the seeker. In the end, Orlick never fulfilled his revenge by trying to kill Pip. Instead, Pip asked, “‘Is it Pumblechook’s house that has been broken into, then?’‘That’s it, Pip,’ said Joe…‘But he knowed Orlick, and Orlick’s in the county jail’”(497). With his overflowing resentment for Pip, he decides to make a premature decision to break into Pumblechook’s house.
Jünger’s tone gradually changed throughout his war years, perhaps because death and destruction constantly surrounded him. After the numerous close calls with death during the Battle of Somme, Jünger “noticed the experience had taken its toll on [his] nerves” (Jünger, p. 88). A year later, Lieutenant Brecht, who Jünger knew as a calm man, even in the face of total war, was killed. His death caused Jünger to think of his own mortality which was disheartening (Jünger, p. 197). The death of his friend Tebbe a few months later also caused Jünger great pain.

Wilfred Owen 's, "Exposure", states the fate of the soldiers who perished from the violent war to end all wars, World War One. The themes that are present in this poem are war and disparity. These two themes constantly remind the reader of the ever-present aura of violence. The soldiers are exposed to the horrible conditions of open trench warfare while fighting on the enemy ground. He writes the poem in the first person, and uses the pronouns of "we, us," to symbolize that all of the souls in the battleground felt "the poignant misery" of the war, and describes the bleak dismal that the soldiers all felt collectively in the war.
During the Battle of the Bulge, soldiers fought in “grueling physical and psychological conditions” that led to persistent struggles after the war with remembering these conditions (Intro: Battle of the Bulge). Many veterans refer to the immediate effects of returning as the “shock of peace” (Childers). However, despite these widespread mental health problems, there were few psychiatrists to treat these soldiers as well as a “cultural ethos” that discouraged discussing emotions, especially among men (Childers). When soldiers returned home, they often had difficulty with finances. Many came home to find that they were replaced in their old occupations and that, in general, jobs were in short supply.
The soldiers, the country and the families of all the men in the war were all impacted by the war and especially by PTSD. PTSD is a really big anxiety problem that develops in some people 's minds after seeing people die or witnessing harsh things.This war was not like any other war; this war was not even planned out. After the war, a lot of men did not get the health care they needed even though they should have been guaranteed care with full insurance for both physical and emotional needs. During the Vietnam War, the emotional impact to the soldiers resulting from PTSD often having a tragic ending for those who served. Before identifying PTSD, “Nostalgia” was the term used to define a condition characterized by melancholy, incessant thinking of home, disturbed sleep or insomnia, weakness, loss of appetite, anxiety, cardiac
PTSD means Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and is a deadly disease emotional and physically. For example, it causes veterans to see flash backs of what they have saw over seas, they can physically hurt themselves and are unable to control the disease. PTSD is known to destroy family 's and break them apart even though the veterans can 't control it. "When trauma reactions are severe and go on for some time without treatment, they can cause major problems in a family"(Carlson).This shows how most family 's get divorced after a veteran has come back from war because of how severe the disease is. No veteran wants to admit that they have a disease, because they want to be seen as a tough individual.
