    Everyone needs to get ready to welcome our soldiers home. We know that it is time to rejoice and welcome when in the commercial it says, “You’ve been missed. You’ve been needed. You’ve been cried for. Prayed for. You’ve been the reason we push on.”. If we are finally welcoming our soldiers home, then that must mean we are finally able to rejoice that the war is over. Another saying that answers the question, “Why?”, is “We wait. We hope. We pray. Until you’re home again.”. After all that time of us waiting

Harold Krebs left home as a fraternity brother wearing the same height and style collar and returned as soldier in a uniform, just being gone two years. Upon his arrival he missed the homecoming that was hosted for the other soldiers that all left together, as he returned back later than expected. Just based on what I have read I gathered that the root cause(s) of alienation were that he lost a lot

    well-being. Soldiers aren’t only affected physically during war. Many are affected mentally as well.

    The Old Soldiers’ Home “They freely risked life and limb to protect the nation, and it seems but simple justice for the nation to care for them when unable to care for themselves” (Guide Publishing 1) was a shared opinion of many by the end of the Civil War. After these men have put their life on the line for the nation, any train of thought opposite of this would be absurd. Injury from the war is expected, but unfortunately, some of the blows these vets received were too harsh to bounce back from

    men or nations, as there are wars rooted within ourselves. War to many is unknown and painful, showing the dark side of humanity, and to others it is a sign of glory and conquest.

Krebs' loss of interest and detachment to post-war society alludes that an unattainable reality to fit back into everyday life was placed on veterans by civilians who had romanticized views

    Dearest Mother, I appreciate all that you have sent for me out here, from the magazines to the homemade cookies. Especially the cookies, although I do wish they were fresh out of the oven back home. I long for the days I came home to the savory, alluring smell of a home cooked meal or the times I spent with father learning how to blacksmith. Initially, it’s what I thought I would end up doing but instead here I am confined to the recruit barracks. I write to you from a cavernous room filled with
