Forty years have passed since my deployment as a combat Marine to Vietnam. However, only several years since I acknowledged my inability to continue suppressing the demons alone. Like many veterans, the â€œDemonsâ€ have haunted me through nightmares, altered personas, and hidden fears. Even as many veterans manage the demonsâ€™ onslaught successfully, millions survive in destitution, needless solitude and social disconnection. Scores consider themselves cowards, should they concede to the demonsâ€™ hold. Countless live in denial and loneliness, protecting their warriorâ€™s pride. The most vulnerableâ€” tormented by guilt and feeling forever alone â€” too often choose to â€œendâ€ their lives.
