Throughout the story, there are several examples of veterans struggling because they no longer live the life they used to. The struggle continues even “thirty years after military discharge,” (Shay 6) causing [one veteran] to “[use] up four weeks of vacation time, 150 hours of sick time, and 80 hours without pay” (Shay 6) in only one year. Bear, a Vietnam veteran, mainly has to leave work in order to “prevent himself from killing somebody, but also to receive treatment at the VA” (Shay 6). Bear isn’t able to live a normal life because of the violent military experiences he lived through. If forced to live a “normal” life, he believes he would put everyone (coworkers and family alike) in harm's way.
The narrator said, “During the first fortnight, Gregor’s parents could not bring themselves to enter his room…” He has been disconnected from his family to the point where they’re emotionally unstable and unable to treat him as he deserves with affection and comfort to help him cope with his metamorphosis.

Overall Gregor has changed both physically and emotionally.
"I thought I would die," says Kim Pace who for six months lost more than 30 kilograms, and until then the normal body structure. She was not talking about diet nor of eating disorders - but the fear of stabbing pain on the left side of his face every time he opened his mouth. No tooth brushing is not an option because the slightest touch driven by waves of unbearable pain, which Pace describes as electric shocks. Analgesics and even morphine would provide relief only briefly. Unable to work, Pace first took sick leave and then resigned in the workplace financial consultant bank at the age of 59 years.
The importance of the title “Shiloh”, the short story by Bobbie Ann Mason, signals the story is all about Norma Jean and Leroy’s marriage falling apart after Leroy had an accident on his rig. Although he is almost fully recovered now, he is afraid to drive the rig again. That means that he is no longer the head of the household, and he begins to lose his identity as the provider.

Henry saw himself as a hero before he got into a battle, but when faced with the reality of war, his imaginations did not come true. For instance, during the march to battle, Henry was continuously complaining about how all the walking was tiring him out and that it was all for nothing. Henry said, “I can't stand this much longer, I don't see what good it does to wear out our legs for nothin’” (Crane 35). Henry knew what he was signing up for when he joined the army, yet in difficult conditions he lacked the motivation to keep going. Another scenario of cowardice shown through dialogue was when Henry was complaining about always losing battles and blaming it on his generals.
War has a way of affecting everyone. When a soldier returns home from their service, they may not be the same as they left and it may take some time for their family to adjust to the changes. This change in a veteran’s behavior has been known by many names throughout history. It really isn’t something people want to bring up in conversation or even accept as an issue.

A six-month examination by The Times found that the rescuers ' ability to save themselves and others was hobbled by technical difficulties, a history of tribal feuding and management lapses that have been part of the emergency response culture in New York City and other regions for years. The other flaws in their plan were lapses in leadership and coordination and a lack of proper planning and training and lack of emergency resources (ambulances). Due to lack of coordination, the Fire Department could not account for the number of fighters that were sent into the towers, and where they died. The Emergency Medical Service said they only had ambulances for 400 calls while the chief of the Port Authority police said the region 's bridges, tunnels, and ports were drained of
