Please do not give up. My nephew was hit by a missile in 2005 and is this year, starting over, it is really hard. My friend Ron wrote Born on the Fourth of July, the Tom Cruise movie.......he is now at home, and at peace, learned to play the piano, and hopefully proud of the help he gave other veterans. God bless.............you made it through war, you can make it through peace............
