    Mark Kasic Memorial Day is not just for the physically wounded

    Mark Kasic

    Memorial Day is not just for the physically wounded veterans and active duty service men and women but also for the mentally and emotionally.  Men and women all around different world are mentally and physically wounded from war.  U.S. military may be voluntary ever since the Second World War but it wasn’t always like that.  The WWP or Wounded Warrior Project have helped 320 warriors get placed in jobs, help them recover from the wars they have been in, and to help them live with their disabilities and have a great life.  Thank You For Your Service is a biography about the men and women David Finkel followed for research on post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. This includes the men in his battalion and the wives of these men.  “Of the two million, studies suggest the 20 to 30 percent have come home with post-traumatic stress disorder-PTSD-a mental health condition triggered by some type of terror, or traumatic brain injury-TBI-which occurs when a brain is jolted so violently that it collides with the inside of the skull and causes psychological damage.” pg 19
    This book is interesting to me because most of the time on a street most people only see the physically wounded warriors.  This book shows that there is more than just that.  Coming from a family with a grandpa as a WWII Marine fighting right next to the raising of the flag that all Marines are known for, I understand that wounded warriors are not only physically wounded.  Knowing all this just helps me understand more about why he was irritable sometimes and would b aggressive.  With all this in mind I still want to follow in his footsteps as a United States Marine.
