...well, don't forget about the spouses and children who have military experiences too. Although they weren't in first hand, their support and encouragment means alot to those who are servicing now and who have serviced. I mean, can this be a site for them too?
...I just noticed this new forum yesterday. I was wondering what all Moonpups had up his sleeve with this one. (Hi Moonpups, congrats.!) Pleased it hasn't been too bad so far, lol.
...My Dad doesn't talk about the wars he was in. But I do think this forum can be helpful to the one's who can talk about it.
This forum is for ALL those You mention as well public that wishes to understand the impact War has on all.. them (outsiders) included.. I have learned You don't need to be first hand at it.. just coming to know Mitch (moopups) on these boards has introduced Me to the horrendous scars the Nam War left on His Heart and Mind.. We never really know why people come into our lives .. but I feel richer for His outward efforts at helping heal and aid others who lived this ..
So PLEASE keep sharing StrayCat.. tis appreciated here..
I think it takes time for the sense of a forum to develop. I remember when I started the family board, it took a few weeks to get 20 posts!
Some of the topics here are very deep and it might take people to places they have not gone for a while. Time and patience are needed. As people feel safe and understood, they will open up more and more.
