PostSubject: The Return Home: An Operator's Tale   Tue May 05, 2015 1:38 pm

What's up everyone, Matticus4205 here once again. As some of you my know my works usually include some crazy ass moments, chasing a HVT into a kill zone, getting ambushed, helicopter getting shot of the sky and jumping 30 feet to escape death. Well I decided to take a new approach, I feel this is never really brought into detail so I decided to write about it. Have you ever wondered how a Operator, who has spent so much time in a combat zone, tries to re-adjust himself to civilian life? This is something that has been bugging for years, what do you do when after the last year or so was spent in a foreign country and under constant threat? How does one simply go back to living a normal life? So I bring you a tale that may tug at the heart strings and make you think, let me introduce you to a character inspired by all the men and women in the Special Forces Community. I'd like you to meet Daniel A.K.A "Jester".

Jester:
 

Jester is a Green Beret returning from his third deployment to Afghanistan, after several combat tours the human mind starts to show some wear and tear. One can only sustain so much of it, in society some people see guys like Jester as sort of super human, like no matter the situation these guys can phase through it. When in reality they're human like the rest of us. Granted they have the ability to block out emotions when on a mission but it takes a toll on them afterwards.

For those who have family members who have either served and paid the ultimate sacrifice or who have served and are going through something similar as depicted in this story, I want to apologize in advance if this offends or causes certain emotions to flare up. This is not my intention, I simply want to write a piece that depicts what movies and video games can't. Feel free to speak your mind in the comment section, if you wish to share an experience or just to simply offer your opinion I welcome it openly. I'll warn you though if any negative or hurtful comments are posted I will reply in turn. I do not want any bullying or negative thoughts posted in this thread. That's not what my posts support, if you feel the need to say something negative please keep it to yourself and move on with your day. You don't have to read my posts they're completely optional. Now without further ado, I present to you The Return Home.

The Return Home:
 


I would like to apologize once again if I caused any discomfort while anyone read this, again that was not my intention. I simply wanted to write a story that would depict what these men and women go through after coming from combat. If you feel the need to share your thoughts than please post them below, also if you have any questions you may post those below as well. Thank you for letting me share this story with you and thank you for your continued support of my writings I'll be releasing more in the near future.

Just like me dude... hah, just like me , the moment the policemans get the one with postraumatic dissorder, and check their wrists, and then release him and put him inside the car like :"Youre one of us dude, dont worry, you will be ok"... wow... makes me get chicken skin. Still, there are few people like them to help those homeless veterans, and furthermore, people makes selfies with them, jokes , laughs at them , etcetera.

Looks like ignorance is nowadays one of the pillars of the society

Ain't that the fuckin truth brother, I know there are few homeless vets in my town and I do what I can to help out but sometimes you're efforts just aren't enough. I've always had respect for the men and women serving. I've been lucky enough to sit down and talk with a few of them which some of my characters are based off of. Just hearing their stories and imagining what they go through overseas, it gives me chills but I respect them because it's their choice to go over there and get shot at, it's their choice to go over there and attempt to bring stability to a hostile region. They're doing something that very few of us have the courage to do and as a society the majority of us take that for granted. We'll never what it's like to be in combat zone, the only we can even say we know what these men and women are going through is if we put on the uniform and service in the shit with them.

Damn, Matt! That was some impressive stuff. Being a writer myself, I absolutely adore to see the art flourish. I hope to see more from you in the future, you've made me want to work on my stuff again. I truly respect this topic of writing because I have a few friends in the service now and an old teacher who served in Nam. He's such a cool dude, and I really appreciate him. Thanks for the good read man!

Gotta admit, I really liked reading this. It was good, and I felt immersed. It provoked alot of thinking as well.
Side thoughts:
 


This story, and the conversations about it really provoked some deep thinking in me. Heh. Sometimes I ramble Smile

World is upside down, man, the respect values are almost lost, not only in this kind of situations, but in lots more, its sad to see what is this going to end like, and also, seeing that nobody does nothing to fix the situation, because nobody dares or simply nobody gives a fuck about anything that is not related to their own interests... Human nature is the problem i think, like in war.
