I thought you were fine. You're lying to me, I found your VA questionnaire, everything's a lie! You're sick and I can't do anything if you don't fucking talk to me, Adam!
I have to be sick or I can't get my benefits.
So you don't want to die? It was multiple choice and you said you wanted to die. Was that a lie? Hmm? Adam?
I don't know.

I took my mother to see this film so that she may understand through a movie what I could not share with her verbally but what she has witnessed physically with me. This is not a war movie but a film of what war does to you and how it affects you after you are no longer in physical war but your mind stays in mental war and no one understands ( EMPATHY) except those there with you. After 3 combat tours I identified with things that went over a lot of peoples heads but the movie moved me and Dream Works did a spot on job with what we with PTS go through and why its so hard to deal with and maybe if everyone saw this film they could see the inner turmoil a soldier, a marine, a airman, and a seaman goes through after experiencing physical and mental trauma. Thank You for your service hits on all aspects from the ptsd sufferer to the spouses and all around them. this is a must see to spread compassion to all who served.
