And while I am talking to you mothers and fathers, I give you one more assurance. I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again; Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars.
Contrary to President Roosevelt's campaign promise in 1940, young men and women still do go to war. Unlike World War I, World War II, sometimes these men and women fight in undeclared wars, such as Bosnia and Vietnam. Because of the acts of violence and death that many soldiers, Navy, Marines and Merchant Marine personnel experience, some men and women come home adversely affected.
These war-time experiences often leave scars that do not easily heal. Even in the best of situations, help is needed to initiate and help the healing process along. Simply put, this condition is commonly referred to as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
