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.
