MY Soldier Reading Wilber's War
I have never served or fought in war, so I can never truly understand how the soldiers feel when they come back home. My husband is a retired disabled veteran and loves reading books written by and about other veterans. He understood the reality of combat, the invisible wounds of war. The struggle of what it takes to try to adjust when you come home. How hard it was on his wife at the time when he came home and their life just wasn't the same. He could understand and feel what he felt. How hard it can be on kids when you are deployed for a long time.
My husband did not put this book down until he finished it. I could tell that it touched him and brought of many memories of his own. At times he just dropped his head and times I think I saw a tear fall. For someone like him who understand war this was a very accurate description of what happens when our loved ones defend our freedom. For me, a civilian, it opened my eyes and gave me an insight into what our military go through to protect us.
