When I got out I was complete shit show. Making the transformation back to civilian life I lost a lot of friends and pist off a lot of everyone bc I was a dick. Maybe making a show or skit about It to show to family and friends could maybe help them understand and cope with all the shit a vet goes through. The transformation was harder then anything else like being in charge of a shit load of people the starting careers your at the bottom of the barrel again and It sucks. But you guys are awesome and this shit is funny and I’m sure It helps a lot of people keep up the good shit thanx
Many of us here are VET Tv know exactly what you are talking about when it comes to transitions back to civilian life being difficult (myself included). I'm thinking funny instructional video? We could be onto something with that idea! Thoughts?
The Kill, Die, Laugh episode (S1EP09) was pretty good. It's a tough nut to crack. Showing the civilian "options" is probably half the point. For example: my grandfather just died on base, my father was more or less fired from his civilian basement job for getting cancer (because it would cost the company too much), my friend had to "retrain" to be a minimum-wage fireman after running $30 million in weapons, I went to college (you guys have a college thread), my dad's friend had PTSD and raging back pain for maybe a decade (then lucked out, stumbling into some good therapy and a semi-ethical security job); almost everyone died or got divorced. Oddly though, lots of people had very successful kids--I don't know what to say about that, but it's true.
