"Does any one know what happened to Sergeant H. in Lima Co. after the battle for the hill?"
Veteran internet sites are filled with these questions like notes posted on a fence after a disaster. War is a disaster. We are in pieces, individually and collectively, trying to be whole again; though this can never be. We can come together but we will always be missing the fallen. Yet we can mitigate these losses. We are in charge of our own history as well as our future. Honoring our dead will help fill the holes. Connecting with our brothers in combat will offer relief and integration. No one else can understand as well..
In the noble quest for healing and wholeness, let's come together and honor our time we spent at war. By sharing our stories we can restore our past and thereby provide a coherent future for our grandchildren..
If we make connections we can reclaim our shared experience. Only then will we be remembered.
