Gregg, sorry for the delay in my response back to you. I have had a hell of a month. Coming home was tough for me because in all truth, I still wanted to fight. I didnt want to fit into the civlian world. I felt that fighting was what I did best and when my skill was no longer needed, I felt like i had nothing that I was proud of. I loved that adrenaline rush of being shot at, how do you replace that feeling? The thing I did was tried to drink it away. Wrong answer. I ended up getting arrested a few times. Than I would resist being arrested because in my head, I was doing what I did best, fight. I finally calmed down after almost a year of this. I am still very unsure of how to replace the value I felt I had in the army. But I am trying. If you want to ask me a specific questions, please feel free and I promise to answer faster this time. Take care.
