I served in 2005 in support of OIF III. I had a terrible time transitioning back to civilian life. I was a reservist deployed to Iraq. When I returned I found out I had been fired whilst I had been deployed.
Then I spent two years living on the streets. My military service helped me to survive and get back on my feet.
I suffer with sleep issues since 2005. My body sleeps but my mind is awake. Even though I grew up as a dependent and was a reservist most (but not all) of my time I struggled.
I’m not gong to say thank you for your service because I hated to hear this
