Once you understand that what you did there helped keep you alive, and that no one should expect perfect performance from themselves or others in combat, it makes perfect sense to be a little more vigilant than the average guy that has not lived in that environment. Combat vets are different, but they aren't abnormal, for the most part.

Some guys do get stuck in transitioning to home life, and they deserve every bit of help we can give them.

Being in combat changes everyone. I think it changed me for the better. Every experience is unique, and every person experiencing those situations is unique too. There is no cookie cutter solution that will work for everyone.
