Every life we gave was spat on. That’s how serving impacted me.” “Let’s see. Lost the functional use of a hand, developed a rare movement disorder and cancer both likely from burn pit exposure, enjoy sleeping 3 to 4 hours most nights due to nightmares and during the day random anxiety attacks all due to PTSD, 7 herniated discs, arthritis…” “My son served and did one tour of OEF, he made it back, re-enlisted, and shot himself in the head.” (Thanks, George W.
