The story behind the story: This story is about war, and the war at home. It's about camaraderie and relationships, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It's about surviving and quittin g-- but also, remembering and thinking and dreaming, and crying and helping and failing, too. Most of all, it's for Brian, and others like him, that those like me may see the signs sooner.
