The crazy part of the war is that people went and made the same mistake over and over again. I can just imagine the pain and sadness people go threw. Reading this article made my eyes watery because I can imagine myself sending soldiers to kill and be killed. Also having your mother and your four siblings dead, you would never forget the pain.

It is these things, such as seeing a close friend get shot, killed or blown up that can cause severe mental trauma. The way the American soldiers always took care of their own, while heroic, was costly. The American motto is “No man left behind”, this means that no matter what shape the soldier is in, his body will not be left where he died. Seeing someone get shot, and then trying to recover him while being shot at, or holding the injured soldier as he’s bleeding to death, will cause the memories to be ingrained in a soldier 's mind for the rest of his life.
