I thoroughly enjoyed this essay. My brother, sister, and brother-in-law, have been to Iraq. I have seen how difficult it is to transition from being a soldier to becoming a person again. Your story hit on so many points about the benefits of good character, friendships, perseverance and more. I felt encouraged. Your brother is an amazing human being. So are you. Thank you for sharing such an inspiring essay.
