My father was in World War Two. He came home - he is still alive now. He just turned 92. When he came home from war, he was never quite the same. Certain things would set him off without warning, and he would never talk about what happened. Only a few years ago, he told us about his reollection of being bombed; and having a pile of dead bodies atop of him. Much the same as all soldiers, he was not the same man upon arrival home. 1
