This video by Terrence Popp absolutely shredded me. It’s a powerful tribute to men who have served and who come back to families torn apart and destroyed by divorce. They are strangers to their children and enemies to the family courts.
I knew about soldiers with traumatic brain injuries and PTSD, and I wrote about that here, but I had never really considered the true impact of the family/divorce angle.
How heart-breaking. Who are these women, and why do they do this? I can’t come up with any plausible answers, possibly because I have not experienced what it is like to have my husband deployed to a war zone, but it seems to me this was not the case when WWII soldiers returned. 90% of married WWII soldiers did not get divorced, surely?
What the hell, ladies? You seem a lot like monsters to me.
